Chris Rock grabs foul ball and gives it to kid at Yankees game (Video)

Chris Rock did a nice deed on Saturday, as he gave a foul ball to a young fan at Yankee Stadium.

Sitting behind the Houston Astros’ dugout, Rock had a foul ball hit right to him courtesy of the Astros’ Jon Singleton. The comedian failed in his attempt to catch the ball, likely in part because he had his cell phone in one hand and was also trying to protect his head. Rock immediately picked up the ball in front of him and found a young fan to give it to.

Here’s a better angle of Rock’s questionable attempt to catch the ball, via Yahoo Sports.


Regardless of Rock’s poor baseball form, he still did a nice thing and should be applauded for it.

It was surely a good day for Rock, as his Yankees defeated the Astros 3-0 behind a strong pitching performance from Brandon McCarthy. The Yankees are now four games out of the second wildcard spot held by the Detroit Tigers with 37 games left to play.

Rock’s next film is Top Five, which he directed, wrote and is the star of. It is set for a September release.
