During a pregame event on Saturday a fan had to try to catch fly balls with nothing but a watermelon.  After a few failed attempts, he finally made the grab.

We aren’t sure what the point of the whole event was, but we hope that the Mariners gave him some free tickets or concessions for participating in their gimmick.

The event should have been attempting to catch the fly balls in a beer cup and then chugging the beer.  That’s a skill that fans can actually put into practice.
