Washington Nationals fan Jeff Adams became a viral star after Sunday's World Series game, when TV cameras caught him taking a ball to the chest while holding beers in both his hands, UPI reports. Adams was carrying the two Bud Lights when Astros player Yordan Alvarez hit a two-run homer which hit him in the chest. Video of the moment popped up all over Twitter, with people loving the fact that Adams took the shot rather than spill a drop of beer. Adams said he saw the ball coming but decided to let it hit him. "I'm solid," he said. The marketing team at Bud Light also noticed, calling Adams a "hero" for saving his beers. The company also tweeted that they've been in contact with Adams, and he will be wearing a new T-shirt commemorating the "heroic" moment at Game 6 in Houston on Tuesday that reads, "Always Save the Beers." Unfortunately for Adams, his Nats are down three games to two heading into Game 6 after losing Game 5 by a score of 7-1.
