Twins Fan Catches Foul Ball While on Cell Phone: June 2012 Video
A Minnesota Twins Fan Caught a Foul Ball While Talking on His Cell Phone During a Game on June 12, 2012. Here is Video
We all know that cell phones have become ubiquitious but this is pretty ridiculous. During the June 12, 2012 MLB game between the Minnesota Twins and Philadelphia Phillies, a fan caught a foul ball while talking on his cell phone.
During the top of the seventh inning, a Phillies player ripped a ball foul on the first base side. The ball went into the stands and some dude talking on his cel phone caught the ball and didn't seem too fussed about the whole thing.
Deadspin imagined what the conversation would sound like.
"Right. Uh huh. Yeah. Hey. Yeah. Oh, boy. ... Here it ... I gotta ... Huh. ... OK, right. Oh, I know, totally. [Here you go, hun.] What's that? Oh, nothing. Listen, lemme call you back."
Maybe catching a foul ball while talking on your cell phone isn't such a big deal after all. Last week an A's fan missed a foul ball, then moments later caught another one while talking on his cell phone.
