After retrieving a foul ball that had been hit into the dugout, Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Melvin Mora flipped the ball into the front row of the stands.

His toss was intended for a young blond woman, who had the kind of look that would encourage a guy to give a girl a baseball.

However, a full-grown man seated behind her objected to Mora’s alleged act of favoritism, and literally ripped the ball from her hands.

According to the announcers, the young woman lost two fingernails in the rather violent transaction.

She did get another ball, though, when somebody in the Diamondbacks’ dugout realized what had happened.

As for the overzealous man-child?  He’ll have to live with permanent Internet  proof that he is no gentleman.  Check out the damning video below.
