And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you give out your phone number on television.
During the sixth inning of Sunday's series finale in San Diego, Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman ran into foul territory and reached into the second row of seats to make the catch. He made that grab in front of fan Stephen Kondor, whose hand got caught into Freeman's glove.
Interviewed by FOX Sports South and SportSouth reporter Tom Hart moments later, Kondor proceeded to give out his phone number. Here was the exchange:
HART: Freeman's the man who made the play. I'm with the kid who didn't. Stephen is a junior at Torrey Pines High School. He tells me he plays baseball, but I'm not quite sure. What did you think when Freddie Freeman came over the wall?
KONDOR: I didn't know he was coming until my hand was in his glove completely. I thought I had it for a second, but he pulled it right away from me.
HART: Yeah, famous last words, he can do that to you. How big are you? How much do you weigh?
KONDOR: I'm 6-3, 180.
HART: And Freddie's 6-5, listed at 225. Did you notice when you heard those footsteps coming?
KONDOR: I didn't hear anything coming. He was quiet.
HART: What did he say afterwards?
KONDOR: I just got a lot of boos afterward. That's it.
HART: You know you're going to be an internet sensation right now. Do you have a girlfriend currently?
KONDOR: No, but my phone number is (NUMBER OMITTED)...Hit me up anytime.
HART: Oh, this man knows how to take advantage of it.
Not surprisingly, Kondor proceeded to get a flood of calls and text messages from viewers.
