An Oakland Coliseum drink vendor caught a foul ball with his cap during Wednesday's Athletics game against the Kansas City Royals.
It happened in the bottom of the fifth inning as A's outfielder Josh Reddick hit a foul ball in the stands on the third base side. An alert vendor gave his drink tray to a nearby security guard and made a nice catch of the foul ball with his cap.
In the end, he didn't keep the ball, but he gave it to a young fan and then went right back to work. Classy move.
