Wow...I was actually present at the game when this happened. I grew up like a mile away from the stadium, and would go to games all the time. I was 4 years old when this happened. He would always have extra foul balls that he collected during batting practice and kept under his chair, and he would give them out to kids who weren't lucky enough to catch their own during games.
