That is exactly what happened to a Blue Jays fan at the Rogers Centre on Friday. But all was not lost as former Toronto catcher and present analyst Gregg Zaun learned what happened to the fan. Seeing that the ball had deservedly gone to a young child, he personally delivered a signed ball to the fan in the seventh inning. The kid was ecstatic, the fan was thrilled and the rest of the crowd cheered as the Blue Jays ended up winning the game over the Rangers, 6-1.
