Phillies Fan Makes A Great Grab (Video)
Oftentimes it is the players on the baseball field that provide us with some awe-inspiring defensive effort, but every now and then we are treated to the same from those beyond the field of play. In Philadelphia, that can include both the lovely ball girls, and the fans in the stands. Yesterday afternoon it was the latter providing us with this highlight.
With things looking great for the Phils, up 4-1 in the bottom of the sixth with the bases loaded and two outs, a foul ball off the bat of Shane Victorino gave the fans something else to cheer about. With an ice cream in his hand, and a young child (or grandchild) next to him, this guy simply reached over the railing and make a terrific grab.
Unfortunately it was the last thing the Philadelphia faithful would have to applaud as they would blow their three run lead and lose to the lowly Washington Nationals by a score of 7-5. A sour way to end the day, but at least it wasn’t all bad for this Phillies fan and his sweet set of hands. He not only snagged himself a nice souvenir, but his kid was also smart enough not to throw it back. May sound strange, but it’s not like we haven’t seen that happen before.
