Kid seems kinda thrilled about catching Mark Teixeira’s grand slam (video)


In his fourth game since returning to the lineup after an extended stint onĀ  the disabled list, Mark Teixeira connected on an offering from Cleveland Indians starter Justin Masterson, barely depositing a grand slam in the right field seats to give the New York Yankees a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning Monday night at Yankee Stadium.

It was Teixeira’s first homer of the season as the Yankees sent three more runners across the plate as the team beat the Indians by a score of 7-4.

But what really makes this highlight noteworthy is the reaction of the young Yankees fan who snags the fly ball in his cap. I mean he’s pretty pumped up about it.


“Ho, ho, ho, you’re on the Mark, Teixera!” Solid, in a weaksauce sort of way.

Anyhoo, here is a GIF that properly documents just how happy this young Yankees fan was after leaning over the railing just a hair perhaps and securing the grand slam ball in his cap (via For The Win):

Good on you, kid.
