Angels fan let his excitement show after barehanding a Mike Trout foul ball

If you sit around the dugout at a baseball game, it's in your best interest to pay attention. One man sitting behind the visitor's dugout during Friday night's game between the A's and Angels was, and he wound up taking home a pretty great souvenir as a result.
Mike Trout was facing A's reliever Ryan Dull in the seventh inning when he slapped a foul to the seats behind the dugout -- and this fan sprung into action, making a nice reaching grab with his bare hand. After reeling it in, he didn't hide his enthusiasm ... and why should he? It was a great play.

Then again, maybe he was doubly stoked due to the Angels having a "Christmas in June" theme night:

The Halos may have lost the game, 7-4, but that fan most likely went home happy.
