Most baseball heroes are bred out on the field. But others arise from the lowly stands, without even a Minor League contract to their name. During the first World Series game between the Royals and Giants, fans stopped paying attention to those bozos on second base entirely to marvel at this peanut guy, who expertly lobbed snacks up to a far-flung tier. The fan who threw his money back had considerably less accuracy, but the man still got paid, and earned a ton of new fans in the process. Enjoy this GIF of the action, then go recreate the magic by hurling your empty Planters can into the dumpster two floors down. (Editor's note: please don't.)
