Luis Valbuena secured a foul popup then smoothly delivered a high-five to a fan

Angels first baseman Luis Valbuena is, first and foremost, a professional. This is his 11th year in the Major Leagues, and he takes his job very seriously.
But he's also an entertainer, someone who wants to ensure that fans have a great time at the ballpark -- the kind of man who will take even the flimsiest excuse to break out a bat flip. So, as he drifted toward the stands down the first-base line to catch a foul popup during Sunday's game against the Astros, he made sure he made the grab ... and then gave out a quick high-five:

One out recorded, one Angels fan for life.
