A Cincinnati Reds outfielder offered some comic relief at a Major League Baseball game by showing major interest in a fan’s snack.
Jesse Winker had just completed a textbook catch against the Atlanta Braves at the Great American Ball Park when he noticed a plate of nachos in the vicinity.
Cue some genuine interest from the fielder, before he eventually turned the food down.
