A Giants fan caught a foul ball and her reaction, a mix of shock and total excitement, will make you smile

If you bring a glove to the ballpark and sit in a section where foul balls are possible, you'd better be ready when the moment strikes.
And when it does -- when that baseball heads in your direction, despite the odds and the fact that it could have gone to thousands of other patrons at the stadium -- enjoy the moment.
That is, if you make the catch. A Giants fan behind the home-plate area in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Marlins was ready, and capitalized on her moment on a Kelby Tomlinson foul in the second inning. Her reaction was just great: 

Her jacket might say "World Series Champions" in honor of one of the Giants' three titles this decade, but tonight, she's the champion.
