Young Red Sox fan fools Yankees coach into giving him foul ball (Video)
A lucky young Red Sox fan who was sitting behind the New York Yankees’ dugout went home with a foul ball on Saturday, but he had to get creative to land the souvenir. During the third inning of New York’s win over Boston at Fenway Park, Jose Iglesias chopped a foul ball toward the visiting dugout. Yankees third base coach Rob Thomson snagged it and began looking for a fan to toss it to.
That’s when Thomson spotted a young boy who was wearing a Yankees cap and flipped him the ball. The boy, who was wearing a Red Sox hat underneath the Yankees hat, then removed the New York hat and stashed it under his seat.
Of course, there’s a chance Thomson was simply looking for any kid to throw the ball to and not just a Yankees fan. Still, we like to think the clever young fella fooled the visiting coach. It’s much more fun that way.
