Kayaker gets sweet redemption on Yaz slam after early flop originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

As the old saying goes: If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

During the second inning of the Giants' tilt with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Oracle Park, Steven Duggar launched a blast over the right field wall and into the cove, giving the kayaker the perfect chance to land a splash-hit souvenir. But, unfortunately, he was beaten to the punch by an intrepid fan with a net.
