Catching a foul ball can be a rather exciting moment for a fan. Some cherish it more than others. When Kansas City Royals play-by-play man Ryan Lefebvre caught a foul ball heading toward the booth, it made color commentator and former Big League journeyman Rex Hudler’s year.
White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie hit what seemed like a harmless pop-up behind the plate that Lefebvre called was coming back toward the booth. And that’s what things just got adorable.
I don’t know if Hudler’s opinion of Lefebvre is that low that he didn’t think he was capable of catching a can of corn or if Hudler and Lefebvre have a proud father/son relationship. Either way, you could hear the glee in Hudler’s WWE-like voice.
As my good friend Isaac over at Guyism might say, “adorbs, you guys.”
