The comedian redeemed himself by giving the ball away to a nearby child
What’s the easiest way to catch a foul ball? Probably with a baseball glove, ya dummy. But what’s the hardest way to catch a foul ball? The world had no idea – until Chris Rock showed us.
On Thursday, Rock took in a New York Yankees game alongside pal Bobby Cannavale, when a foul ball rapidly approached his section. The comedian was left with a choice: Get out of the way, or try to make the catch with the same hand with that holding his phone.
Rock chose the latter path, with predictable results.

Fortunately he redeemed himself moments later, grabbing the wayward ball and giving it to a nearby child.
