CHICAGO, April 20 (UPI) -- A Chicago Cubs fan attending a game at Wrigley Field was caught on camera catching a foul ball in her beer cup and then chugging the remaining liquid.

Krista Dotzenrod, 24, said she was surprised when the ball fell into her cup during Saturday's game against the San Diego Padres.


"I was told they were amazing seats because you can catch a lot of foul balls," Dotzenrod, who has lived in Chicago for seven years, told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I was sitting there, and all of a sudden there is a ball in my cup. It fell straight in there. I didn't know what to do."

Cameras at the ballpark recorded what happened next.

"Everyone behind me told me to chug my beer," she said. "So I did. It was a Green Line beer from Goose Island."

Dotzenrod said the action "all happened in five seconds."

"I chugged the beer and wished the Cubs a great year. The ball is now sitting in my apartment," she said.

Dotzenrod's wish for the Cubs was off to a good start Saturday -- they beat the Padres 7-6.
