Everyone secretly hates the rich guy on the front row at a baseball game. This apparently includes the baseball gods, who decided to give New York Yankees fan Will Smith a wedgie on front of 40,000 people at Yankee Stadium last September.
Sitting in prime real estate just down the third-base line, Smith gets not one, not two, but three chances to fulfill every guy’s fantasy and impress a chick by snagging a foul ball at a big league game. Instead of getting signed and/or laid, however, the depth perception of a 2-year-old combined with the defensive mechanics of someone who works on a beach ball assembly line to produce a horrifying sequence that started with a popup off his hands (which, remarkably, was the the only time they were directly involved) before things devolved into a ground ball off his sternum and a gentle toss from the pitying third base coach that somehow ricocheted off his face.
Smith was like Les Nessman, without the natural athletic ability.
