Tumbling fan makes highlight reel catch at Target Field
There must be something in the water at Target Field that turns the average fan into a Gold Glove outfielder.
Just over a week ago, Twins ball boy Paul Neshek rose sky high to nab a line drive that was headed straight for the stands, eliciting praise from the Target Field crowd as well as White Sox announcers Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone.
This past weekend, a Royals fan sitting on the first base side of the stands nabbed a pop-up with yet another highlight reel catch, reaching far in back and tumbling over a row of seats to make the grab. The catch was so impressive he even got a loud ovation and round of applause from the Twins crowd despite wearing a Royals t-shirt and hat.
Yes, a few points are deducted for using a glove, but the level of difficulty more than makes up for it.
