Kid can't contain joy over foul ball

September 5th, 2021

A young fan experienced the thrill of a lifetime Saturday night at Petco Park when he was handed a foul ball.

This is how it unfolded:

• The initial reaction
• The peace sign followed by pure unadulterated joy
• 10-plus seconds of screaming at the expense of those around him
• The delayed high-five
• 108 stitches encasing the cork, yarn and cowhide that create a lifetime of memories

It’s what baseball’s all about.

Padres fans already have a track record of making magnificent catches, and this young fan is clearly well on his way to grabbing a glove and joining them soon.
