VIDEO: Fan catches Lucas Duda home run ball in his bucket of popcorn

In the sixth inning of last night’s Mets-Braves game, Lucas Duda hit a long home run into the seats in right field at Turner Field. One creative fan decided to use his popcorn bucket to catch it. With something made out of cardboard, there’s a chance for something to go very wrong, but it worked out just wonderfully in this case:

This was a much cleaner catch that than the other popcorn bucket catch we saw earlier this season. But I suppose this guy has more life experience, so it makes sense. Lots more opportunities to catch things with your popcorn bucket.
