A Giants balldude valiantly laid out for a foul ball, but ultimately came up short

During the fifth inning of the Dodgers' 5-1 win over the Giants on Thursday, Cody Bellinger fouled off a ball. Now, normally we'd want to take a little time to introduce you to Bellinger, a top prospect who was just called up a few days ago. But surprisingly, he is not the hero of our tale.

No, the hero is this San Francisco balldude, who went after the foul ball like he was diving for a crucial out in Game 7 of the World Series:

So he didn't catch it. That's OK. It doesn't make his attempt any less noble. Since it's April (and therefore National Poetry Month), we'll remind you of T.S. Eliot's words -- "For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business."
