The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the New York Mets on Sunday, but that didn’t stop one fan from scoring a big win during the contest.

The fan managed to snag a foul ball that left the bat at 97 mph–all while holding an ice cream.

The catch occurred during the top of the seventh inning when Mets outfielder Michael Conforto ripped a 0-2 pitch into the left-field stands.
