The scrum for a foul ball is one of baseball's great traditions. Usually, it ends with one hyped fan hoisting the souvenir high above his or her head while surrounding fans look on with intense jealousy.
Not Monday night, though. Something far weirder happened after a ball found its way into the Guaranteed Rate Field seats.
One Sox fan seemed to have scooped a keepsake until a sly woman committed straight thievery, prying it right from his hands.
The dude's baffled face is high-level entertainment as he struggles to comprehend how he just got straight up hoodwinked.
Watch the video above to see the robbery and Jason Benetti debate Steve Stone on what really happened.
Steve Stone did his best Nostradamus impression on Friday.
The White Sox broadcaster made a prescient comment with Jose Abreu at the plate against Texas Rangers pitcher Austin Bibens-Dirkx in the bottom of the first.
"With the heat tonight and a guy on the mound that does not have a big fastball, I think that 13 home runs away is probably going to go by the boards this evening," Stone said.
Stone was referencing the fact that all 13 of Abreu's home runs this season came away from Chicago. The next sound on the broadcast is the crack of the bat and play-by-play commentator Jason Benetti calling Abreu's home run and saying "Just in time!" to his partner.
Watch Stone call Abreu's shot in the video above.
Todd Frazier followed up to make it back-to-back home runs.
