Allen Craig lifted his 12th homerun of the season this afternoon in Milwaukee, extending the St. Louis Cardinals’ lead to 7-0 at the time.
The more impressive feat was that of the fan who covered a lot of ground to track down the ball and snag it out of the air.
Check out the video below and tip your cap to a Cards fan in a visiting ballpark giving maximum effort to bring home the souvenir.
But who was the fan? Well, thanks to the wonderful world of Social Media (and @gr33nazn on Twitter), we discover that it is none other than “Milwaukee’s Ballhawk” Shawn. You can read more about The Ballhawk at his blog by clicking this link. He claims to be a Cardinal fan, especially Ryan Franklin, and is sporting a Franklin shirsey in the video.
Well done, Ballhawk, well done.
