But instead of sacrificing his drinks, he showed the deft touch of a pro soccer player, controlling the baseball on his chest and bringing it down to his feet, where he subsequently claimed it at his leisure.
"This man is a hero," the official Bud Light account tweeted. "Twitter please figure out who this guy is so we can reward him. #WorldSeries."
The fan was later identified as Jeff Adams, who boasted that the ball didn't even hurt... because it was struck by the Houston Astros.
"It was fantastic," he told WUSA9 after the game. "I was sitting down, my wife went upstairs to get some food ... all of a sudden the ball got hit, I had two beers in my hand, the ball was coming, I watched it, angled, put my chest down, that was it."
While Bud Light didn't specify exactly what his reward would be, when one fan suggested "buds for life, make it happen", the company replied "Oh we will."
Adams almost had a second home run ball to go with his two beers, too; replays show he was just inches away from catching another home run later that same game.
Sadly for Adams, his Nats have thrown away a 2-0 World Series lead to trail 3-2 to the Astros, and now need to win both remaining games to give the state its first title since 1924.
That SAME Bud Light double fisting beer - ball in the chest guy almost caught that homer too!!!
