Don’t mind if I do.
That was Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia’s philosophy as he tracked a foul ball into the stands Saturday, making sure he didn’t come away empty-handed during his trip into foul territory.
During Marlins shortstop J.T. Riddle at-bat in the fourth inning, a pop-up along the left field side sent Arcia after a baseball that ended up in the seats.
But Arcia wasn’t there for the baseball – he wanted a snack.
An unsuspecting fan was holding a helmet bowl full of ice cream, and clearly Arcia figured he might as well have a taste while the fan’s back was turned watching the foul ball.
The fan smiled and laughed after he turned around to see Arcia swiping a bite of his ice cream, with the shortstop keeping a straight face throughout the humorous interaction. But that fan will surely keep a closer eye on his ice cream next time.
