Young fan receives foul ball, quickly returns it to whence it came

Young fan returns souvenir foul ball to sender

While some fans have demonstrated that baseballs can be just as delicious as food, this youngster remained skeptical on Sunday. Lucus Byron, age 4, happened to be enjoying a fine ballpark snack when his dad Pete handed him a foul ball. Then he was forced to consider what was most important to him: Hot dog or foul ball?


Looks like it's hot dogs every time: 


Though Lucas has already been to more than a few baseball games, no ball had ever come his way before. Happily, he got to have his souvenir and eat his food too, as a security guard made sure it was returned to him.
