Imagine sitting in the left field seats at Target Field and catching a Brian Dozier line drive home run with your bare hand. 

It'd be difficult and undoubtedly leave your hand in a considerable amount of pain. 

Now imagine doing the exact same thing, but with a cricket ball, which is rock hard compared to a baseball. 

It's what this random fan did during a professional cricket game, but with $50,000 (in New Zealand dollars) on the line. The kid who caught the ball and the fans around him have a priceless reaction. 

According to the NZ Herald, there have now been two $50,000 one-handed fan catches and they're part of a $1 million promotion.
