A Red Sox fan caught a home-run ball in Cleveland, then checked his phone for congratulations

What do you do if you're a fan of the away team and a home-run ball from your team comes to your section? According to one Red Sox fan during Wednesday night's 6-1 win over the Indians, when Eduardo Núñez hits a home run at Progressive Field, you go get it:

The Clevelander who was victim to this fine glove work was clearly dejected to have not ended up with the foul ball. However, as the announcers pointed out, he should have brought a glove.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox fan's phone blew up with plaudits from family, friends and secret admirers. When you make a great catch in another team's park, you deserve to bask in the glow of accomplishment for a bit.
