A Washington Nationals fan was rewarded by Budweiser over a viral moment where he decided to take a home run baseball in the chest rather than spill his beer, and it was caught on video.
The video from Game 5 of the World Series caught Jeff Adams grimacing slightly as the ball hit his chest, but he didn't spill a drop of the two Bud Light cans he held.
The official Bud Light account asked the internet to find the man so that they could reward him.
This man is a hero. Twitter please figure out who this guy is so we can reward him. #WorldSeries https://t.co/suMtVECfXY— Bud Light (@Bud Light)1572224012.0
After finding Jeff Adams, the company bought him and one of his friends tickets to Game 6 of the World Series, and flew them to the game in Houston. The company added a custom shirt for him to wear.
Update: We are in contact with our hero. He’s wearing this beauty to Game 6. https://t.co/CobFG9q8kC— Bud Light (@Bud Light)1572309378.0
Adams credits his 15-year-old Nationals baseball cap for his ability to take the hit without spilling his beer.
The company also made a hilarious commercial where they proclaim him a hero.
