An elderly fan that was sitting in the Wrigley Field bleachers during the Chicago Cubs-Milwaukee Brewers game on Monday went from being just another spectator to owning the night in a matter of seconds. It all started with a great catch on a Mark Reynolds home run.
If you are going to wear a glove to the ballpark, you might as well turn in a Web Gem. This white-haired gentleman did just that to keep the ball in the stadium, but it was what he did after his awesome catch that impressed me the most.
Not wanting to give off the impression that he was excited to have a home run ball that came off the bat of the enemy, the guy quickly switched the ball for a dummy ball and threw the dummy ball back. You could tell it wasn’t the ball Reynolds hit because it was so filthy, but I’m sure most people didn’t notice. That was an all-time boss move.
