This Red Sox fan made a great catch, then tricked his friend

This was a tough foul ball to catch, so nice work on a no-glove grab. Holding a cell phone in the other hand only upped his degree of difficulty.

The best part of this fan's snag, however, is when he shows the ball to his pal who starts to reach for it, and then -- too slow. Take special note of the pal's graceful transition from grabbing the ball to high-five mode.
