A fan at the Oakland A’s-Texas Rangers game on Monday night made a sweet grab on a foul ball, and he impressively did it while talking on the phone. Yup, the fan was able to haul in the foul ball — moments after missing a previous foul ball (video of that further below) — despite chatting up a pal.
In addition to bringing home a souvenir, the fan got to witness a no-hit bid by A’s rookie pitcher Jarrod Parker, who took a no-hitter into the 8th before it was broken up by a Michael Young single. At least the A’s still cruised to a 12-1 win.
Consider us impressed by the fan; when people talk on cell phones at games, the results are usually much worse.
Here’s another video that shows the same fan whiffing on a foul ball moments earlier:
