A fan in Florida took a potential extra-base hit away from Miguel Cabrera by leaning over the right field fence to snag a fly ball off the bat of Cabrera before Norris Hopper of the Reds had a chance to catch it.
"I did something that anyone else would do," said Fridkin, 21, of Miami.
He said he didn't feel that bad about trying to make the catch and didn't think Cabrera would be angry about the grab. He said he might keep the ball atop his television set so he can see it when he watches Marlins games and be reminded of the only ball he ever caught at a major league game.
I bet Cabrera wanted a hit. And Fridkin should never be allowed in a major league stadium until he proves that he has some semblance of knowledge of the rules of baseball.
