GoPro video of a fan’s incredible barehanded catch at the Biloxi Shuckers home opener on Saturday night has gone viral.

Biloxi native and life-long baseball fan Micah Graves, 20, made a miraculous barehanded catch off a line drive foul ball during the third inning of Saturday’s historic game against the Mobile Bay Bears, according to WLOX.

“The main reason I brought my GoPro was to capture something amazing at the opening game,” Graves told WLOX. “In my head, I thought about how awesome it would be to record a first person’s perspective on catching a foul ball.”

“This was my first ever ball caught at a professional baseball game, and because it was the first home game at MGM Park, I am very pleased to be a part of all the excitement,” Graves said.

The video has since been published on some of the world’s biggest websites, including the front page of Yahoo.com.
