(KUTV) — What do you do when you catch a baseball in your drink and everyone is watching?

If you are Gabby DiMarco, you finish your beer.

The video of DiMarco's miraculous capture of a fowl ball Tuesday night from Petco Park in San Diego has launched the smiling woman to internet fame.

According to, those in the stands around her encouraged her to drink the cold one with a ball in it that she didn't try to catch in the first place. But she definitely intended to finish her beer, with or without the encouragement.

"It bounced from behind me, I wasn't trying to catch it at all, and it landed in my cup," DiMarco said.

She caught the foul that left the bat of Atlanta's Ender Inciarte, in San Diego to visit the hometown Padres.

Her friends' reaction in the video is nearly as good her own.
