Chris Rock wasn’t just watching the New York Yankees game today, he was participating. The comedian caught a foul ball today at Yankees stadium.
Well, he didn’t actually catch it. Chris gave his best effort but couldn’t manage to grab the ball while it was in the air. He did scoop it up from underneath his seat before giving it to a young fan.
That’s pretty much the entire story. Still, it’s all Twitter can talk about. It’s pretty cool, I guess. I mean, how many people get to catch a foul ball? How many times is that person a celebrity?

Only thing better for a kid than getting a foul ball at a game has to be getting a foul ball handed to you by Chris Rock at a game. #Yankees

Most people found the moment cute but some people just couldn’t get past the fact that Chris Rock, a major Mets fan, was at Yankees stadium.
