They say being a Chicago Cubs fan will make you want to pull your hair out frequently. Well, I'm sure one particular fan who attended a 5-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on Friday night would agree. It's just — after tumbling out of the stands attempting to snag a foul ball — he has a bit less hair to pull out.

The hair-losing experience took place during Casey McGehee's seventh-inning at-bat. McGehee pulled one foul off the screen protecting the Cubs third-base dugout. The ball then ricocheted back on the field, and eventually ended up in the hands of Brewers third base coach Ed Sedar, who tossed the ball toward fans seated on the front row a few feet from the camera well.

Sedar's toss seemed to be intended for a younger fan, but our fan reached out with his left hand, deflected the baseball away, lost his balance, and stumbled over the short wall and landed head first on the dirt.

And that's not all that landed on the dirt: {YSP:MORE}

A friendly Brewers fan asks the man if he's all right, and kindly points out he appears to be missing more hair than he was 60 seconds ago.

Cubs broadcasters Len Kasper and Bob Brenly notice a raspberry and the possibility of some missing hair.

Seconds later, what appears to be a clump of hair is located in the dirt. WGN's camera zooms in as an unsympathetic Brenly (who has lost some hair over the years) cackles loudly.

That's already a bad night at the yard. But the same fan gets another crack at a foul ball in the eighth.

Failed attempt to regain his dignity, but at least he didn't lose any more on top.

Here's some video of the fan's unfortunate experience:
