The problems with fan-shot videos of prime baseball moments are almost always the same: They're taken on a crappy cell phone from the upper deck and you have to wait through three minutes of an at-bat before seeing a white ant circle the basepaths below.
If you can stand all the screaming and jostling from other fans, of course.
Sometimes, though, everything lines up just right. A fan is sitting in the good seats behind home plate at Great American Ball Park. And Jay Bruce(notes) hits a homer dead to center on the first pitch of the inning to clinch the Cincinnati Reds' first NL Central title since 1995. This isn't Spielberg-level stuff, but it's amazing in a you-were-there type way. What a moment.
