Chicago Cubs‘ first baseman Anthony Rizzo ran behind the tarp at Wrigley Field, hopped up on the ledge and caught a foul ball Tuesday night in a game the Cubs would win 4-1 over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The foul ball came off the bat of Keon Broxton in the 5th inning. Fans chanted “MVP, MVP,” after the snag, according to the Chicago Tribune.
