Stanton HR at Derby didn't bruise fan's hand, claim a hoax

What at first appeared to be an interesting anecdote from the Home Run Derby has instead turned out to be a hoax.
Jordan Jacobson, who Wednesday sent out a tweet saying he bruised his hand trying to catch a home run from Giancarlo Stanton during the Derby, recanted his story Thursday morning.
Jacobson's initial claim was that while attempting to bare-hand a Stanton-hit homer, he instead received a bruised hand.
