Sometimes the best plays fans make on foul balls are the ones they don’t intend to make. We saw a prime example of that at Wrigley Field on Thursday night. Hanley Ramirez sent a ball chopping down the third base line in the second inning and it hopped up into the stands, bounced off a woman’s forehead and landed directly in her beer cup. It was a nice play, albeit one that she couldn’t duplicate if she tried. We aren’t ready to say it was as impressive as the popcorn bucket catch or the kid who leaned over the bullpen, but it’s definitely up there.
But the real story here is why the guy she was with was so adamant about wrestling the beer cup with the ball in it away from her. Was he trying to hog the spotlight or what? The ball smacked her in the forehead and landed in her beer. She deserves the credit. Take a step back.Google+
