Your browser does not support iframes. A Boston Red Sox fan made a nice barehanded catch of a foul line drive during Friday night's game at Fenway Park, but acted like it was no big deal. It happened in the top of the fourth inning as New York Yankees batter Brett Gardner hit a foul liner into the third base stands. The Red Sox fan snagged it out of the air with one hand, then calmly held it up for everyone to see. Like they say, act like you've done it before, and this Red Sox fan certainly fits the bill.
