Pirates fan plunders fellow Pirates fan while trying to grab a souvenir

You'd think with the success the Pittsburgh Pirates are having this year, there wouldn't be matey on matey pillaging in the stands. Everybody should be too jolly for such a thing.

But as this scene from Thursday night's game shows us, some Pirates fans won't pass on a chance to plunder those around them in pursuit of a souvenir. The ball in question is a ground-rule double off the bat of Darnell McDonald of the Chicago Cubs, not the most valuable booty. No matter, the older fan is so determined to grab it, he topples over the younger fan, sending them both to the ground.

Shiver my timbers! Much like the open sea, apparently, it's every man for himself in the Pirates stands when a ball is available for the taking.

Pennant races are here. Spend the stretch run with us.
