This spectator’s reaction to a home run looked so foul.
While it is a tradition at Houston’s Minute Maid Field to toss back dingers hit by the visiting team, there seemed to be at least a boundary issue here. Besides, any World Series ball would make quite a keepsake.
“I just would have liked to have been able to throw it back myself,” Sarah Head, who first ended up with the ball, told the newspaper.
Kirk Head, who tore it away from her, said: “It’s bad karma to keep it. You’ve got to throw it back. I was just making sure she did.”
Here’s another look:
The Astros won, 13-12, in 10 innings and moved within one victory of their first World Series title.
