Steve Bartman apparently now resides in Texas

Stop us if you've heard this one before: A home fan leans over the left-field seats to snag a foul ball away from his own outfielder, giving new life to the visiting team's comeback effort.

It was nearly déjà vu all over again in Arlington on Saturday, when a Rangers fan grabbed a foul ball out of the reach of Josh Hamilton, bringing back memories of Steve Bartman's epic fail in Chicago in 2003.

Fortunately for this fan, though, the Rangers overcame the blunder and he can avoid the witness protection program.
