A Chicago Cubs fan is being called out and shamed after he snatched a home run ball away from a pair of kids sitting in the front row at Wrigley Field. Kyle Schwarber hit a walk-off home run just over the fence in left field, giving the Cubs a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Two young fans with baseball gloves reached over the wall as the baseball bounced towards them. It was just out of their grasp, but before they could stretch a little further to grab the ball, an adult fan wearing a Mai Tai Guy jersey ran down the steps, scooped up the ball and held it triumphantly over his head.

As fans watching the game on TV saw what happened they took to Twitter to call him out for his actions.

"The @Cubs get a big walk-off W over the Reds. On a side note, karma can be rough and she may be coming to see #MaiTaiGuy soon!?! Taking a ball from a couple boys, shameful."
"#CINvsCHC hey mai Thai guy. You really acted like the big man on campus taking that Schwarber homerun ball from those two little boys at the basket. You should be ashamed. Give it back."
