During the bottom of the first inning of the Angels-White Sox game, A.J. Pierzynski popped a foul ball down the first base line. Pujols tracked it and reached into the stands to make the catch, but a White Sox fan also went for the ball and knocked it away from Albert. Pujols was ticked off that the ball was taken away from him and went berserk.
The fan, who was probably going for the ball as a natural reaction, seemed to enjoy helping his team by knocking the ball away. The other fans certainly liked it — they gave him an ovation afterward.
The umpires made the right decision not to do anything since fans are allowed to make plays on balls in the stands. Luckily for the Angels the play didn’t mean anything; Pierzynski popped out on the next pitch.Google+
