Foul ball? No big whoop.

I remember once at a Mariners game when I was a kid (late 70`s, early 80`s, Not sure) we were sitting up the right field line before the game while the teams took batting practice. The guy next to us has a newspaper, and he`s reading it fully opened out in front of himself like he`s hoping it`ll catch a breeeze and sail him home.

Guy cracks a foul ball right at him, and all my dad says is, "Look out." Guy peeks over the edge, and with a split second to spare barehands the ball out of the air without so much as wrinkling his paper, ball goes in his bag and back to reading. Never said a word.

Like a boss.

That was after he caught the ball. He still catches it like a boss.

He probably put it in his hand before the game and had a friend take the picture. Real game is probably still going on.

YEah, after the catch, the holding up of the ball is traditional, he may still have caught it while on the phone though...

i think it was already in his hand... notice how no one else is even going for it... and that one guy is clapping, so im sure he did go try-hard mode to catch it, then play it off all cool
