Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

David Ross, C

We’ve seen video of guys catching foul balls while holding babies. We’ve seen foul balls land in full cups of beer. We’ve seen ballplayers chase foul balls and steal fans’ popcorn. I have, not, however, seen a fan catch a foul ball with a glove full of popcorn before last night.

Good job going to his left, despite the popcorn. Not everyone can do that.

Well, you got part of it down, Derek. At least you leaned a little to the left on that one.
