Spike Lee Grabs Mark Teixeira's Bat During Yankees-Angels Game (VIDEO)

Spike Lee is a very, very lucky sports fan.

The Oscar-nominated director is frequently seen sitting courtside at New York Knicks home games and occasionally interacting with the players during the NBA season. But during the summer, Lee gets his New York sports fix by heading up to the Bronx to watch the Yankees.

In the first inning of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium, Lee was lucky enough to have Mark Teixeira accidentally launch his bat into his section right behind the home dugout. Lee quickly grabbed the bat, showed it off to the fans and then showed off his left-handed swing.. all with an enormous child-like smile on his face.
