A raccoon ran loose in the stands during Arkansas baseball's Friday matchup with Vanderbilt. Luckily, a fan was there to come to the rescue.
The fan grabbed the raccoon with his bare hands and held it up to cheers from the crowd at Baum-Walker Stadium as members of the Commodores' bullpen looked on from left field.
The incident was dubbed by fans on social media as the "rally raccoon" as the Hogs came back to tie the game after being down 5-0 and then 6-5. Despite that, the rallies ultimately fell short as Vanderbilt won 9-6 in 10 innings.
After grabbing the raccoon, the fan continued to carry it out of the stadium.
After the extra-inning thriller, the Hogs will return to Baum-Walker for the second game of the series Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT.
