More than 1 million people have watched a video posted to Twitter showing a man run to a foul ball and grab it just before a kid can get to it. 

"Look at this, the Iowa fan took it away from the Ohio State kid," the announcer says after seeing the video replay. "That guy is about to get roasted on social media." 

The not so fan-tastic moment happened during the Gophers-Ohio State game Sunday afternoon at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska – home of the Big Ten baseball tournament. 

The kid didn't get the ball, but he did get to see Ohio State beat the Gophers in the semifinals and then go on to win the tournament championship. 

Minnesota's season came to end with the loss to the Buckeyes.
