Fenway Fan Drops Foul Ball
Did anyone see this?
I'm sure it's on YouTube but I don't have a video card on my computer here at work. I saw it on the news.
The fan basically caught a foul ball right in the 1st row of 2nd tier seats. He started celebrating his big catch and in the midst of celebrating dropped the ball and it fell to the lower level.
Don't think the ball was returned to him but the video was hilarious to watch.
Has anyone here caught a foul ball? We have never come close in a major league game but at a minor league game we were really close.
My son who was probably 8 at the time was dead set on catching a foul ball and he didn't understand that the ball had to be hit our way and then have the luck of catching it amongst a bunch of fans scrambling for it.
I noticed a batter kept clipping balls and they were flying over the stadium down left field towards the parking lot. Just for a lark, we left the game a little early and told my son to go look in the general area where the balls seemed to be hit and sure enough we found 4 foul balls just laying there for the taking.
