Young Giants fan pouts over missed ball
Boy given ball by attendants after scowl receives screen time
The scene of young fans clamoring for baseballs is a regular scene at any ballpark. But one young Giants fan caught the eye of the television cameras on Tuesday night at AT&T Park for a seemingly unshakeable scowl.
When Brandon Belt's fourth-inning foul ball found itself in the hands of a woman in the row in front of the young fan, the resulting pout drew the attention of the Giants television announcers. Following a few moments on screen and a comparison to Ralphie from "A Christmas Story," the announcers and Giants personnel presented the fan with a ball and his frown was washed away.
And even more to the young fan's delight, his Giants topped the Dodgers, 5-3.
