Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) attended Tuesday night’s game between the Cardinals and Mets at Citi Field. As luck would have it, Christie was able to snag a Paul DeJong foul ball in the top of the third inning. It wasn’t on the fly, but on a carom off of the protective netting behind home plate. As Christie gave the ball away to another fan, the Citi Field faithful booed him lustily.

CSN Philly’s John Clark has video:

Christie is not exactly popular these days after recently being spotted at Island Beach State Park, which had been closed to the public due to a budget dispute with Democrats. His approval rating dropped to 15 percent. Christie refused to apologize.
