Fan takes selfie after outfielder Brandon Drury dives into stands for catch

A foul ball that sent an Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder flying into the stands at Wednesday night's Florida Marlins game required quick thinking, fast reflexes and good positioning.

And that was just for the selfie.

When Arizona rookie Brandon Drury made a spectacular catch and was slow to get up after flopping forward on the concrete, a fan seized his moment to do the first thing that came to mind: selfie!

Drury turned out to be an unwitting participant in the photo, which happened in the seating along right field.

“I didn’t see that,” Drury told The Arizona Republic. “I got some texts from some of my friends, but I didn’t see exactly what had happened there.”

And for all those giving him a hard time about taking a selfie instead of helping Drury off the ground, the fan gave the equivalent of a "C'mon bro, seriously?"
