In the second time in less than a week, a fan has gone over a railing trying to catch a ball at a major league baseball park. The latest incident happened during the home run derby in Phoenix, Monday night.
Fresh after the tragedy in Texas, Keith Carmickle, from Kingman, Ariz., leaned forward to grab a ball hit by Milwaukee Brewer Prince Fielder.

Fans hold the legs of Keith Carmickle, from Kingman, Ariz. as he nearly fell over a railing trying to catch a ball during the MLB Home Run Derby on Monday, July 11.
Several photographers captured the man dangling by his legs.
After taking the photo above, photographer Michael Chow said "It almost happened again. Luckily he had friends that caught his legs before he dropped. Not too smart. Plus, he dumped a $10 bucket of popcorn for a $5 ball!"
He shared his thoughts on Sportsshooter.com, a website popular among sports photographers.
