Shane Victorino Dives into Stands to Catch Foul Ball, Hijinx Among Fans Ensues (Video)
Most of the talk surrounding last night’s Tigers-Red Sox game at Fenway Park is about the 20-4 final score, or the eight home runs hit by the home team, or David Ortiz getting his 2,000th hit.
Here, however, we’re going to talk about a great catch made by Shane Victorino in the top of the fourth. With the Red Sox trailing the Tigers 4-3 with two outs and runners at the corners, not only did The Flyin’ Hawaiian cover a lot of ground to catch a foul ball and end the inning, but he did so by leaping into the stands.
Then, when a female fan’s cell phone was knocked out of her hands and onto the field, Shane bent down and picked it up for her like a true gentleman.
Take a look:
Not bad, right?
Well, unfortunately, this highlight could have been even better if it had just included two more seconds of footage.
Why? Well, do you see that woman with red hair and a polka dot shirt holding her phone and a beer on the right side of the image above? Well, check this clip out:
Yep. The same guy who knocked the cell phone out of the one woman’s hands gave that other woman a beer shower.
Talk about a clumsy night.
