On Padres Fedora Night, one fan tried to catch a foul with his new headwear -- but failed twice
Fans attending Saturday night's game at Petco Park (won by the D-backs, 9-1) received a Padres Fedora, a hat that looks something like this:
That's a festive piece of headwear isn't it? What it isn't, though, is a receptacle for catching foul balls that fly into the stands. At least it didn't work that way for this fan on
Oof. It's rough enough missing a popup one time, let alone twice on the very same popup. We've seen time and time again (including this past Friday night) that catching baseballs with caps is possible -- it just wasn't in the cards for this guy on Saturday night in San Diego.
If given another chance at a foul someday, may this gentleman have better fortune.
