A covert Red Sox fan at Petco Park blew his cover to make an impressive barehanded catch

A Red Sox fan sat in the stands at Petco Park on Wednesday night for Boston's 7-2 victory over the Padres. Knowing full well he was on the opposition's turf, he kept a (relatively) low profile: No David Ortiz jersey, no giant "IN MOOKIE WE TRUST" sign, just a subtle Fenway Park T-shirt. From afar, he could've been a fan of any team.

But in the second inning, Chris Young launched a foul ball his way, and he had a choice to make: Remain undercover, or go all-out to reel it in.

Rest assured, he chose the latter. 


What better way to announce your fandom then with a leaping, almost-one-handed catch?
