One fan underestimated the power of Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. During the 2014 Home Run Derby on Monday, a man in the stands named Jordan Jacobson attempted to barehand one of Stanton's home run balls. It turned out to be a painful attempt and to make matters worse, Jacobson didn't even get the ball.

“It was extremely painful at first, then went numb after about 15 minutes. It probably would have felt better if I would have gotten the ball.” he told pageqsports.

UPDATE: It's fake.
