A baseball player on a minor league Indiana team tried to return a beach ball to a young fan Saturday after it fell onto the baseball field, but the wind was not on his side, and the entire hilarious incident was captured on video.

D.J. Wilson, a center fielder for the South Bend Cubs, tried time and again – actually 11 times – to throw the ball up to the small crowd before he succeeded.

The team shared the video to its YouTube page, but not without poking a little fun at the player: “The wind was not on WILLLLLLLLLLSOOOOOONNNNNN's side.”
