Video: Padres fan interferes with, taunts Upton

During the ninth inning of an eventual 3-1 Arizona victory Saturday, D-Backs right fielder Justin Upton had a shot at catching a foul ball up against the stands. Being at home, Upton might have thought he wouldn't have to contend with fan interference. He was wrong. A fan snatched the ball right before Upton had a chance at the grab. As Upton looked up in disbelief, the fan pointed to his Padres' hat, as if to say "yeah, I'm the enemy." The fan did seem to be taking verbal shots from D-Backs fans in the area, but not a lot. The ball also appeared to be in play, so the umpires could have ruled it fan interference and didn't. It's of no matter now, since the D-Backs won.

Pretty funny stuff, check out the video below, courtesy of MLB.com.

We hear it all the time - if it's beyond the wall it's the fans ball.  Good for him!  I would  take an out away from the visiting team  if the ball is in the fan area.  It's your right as a fan of your team of choice.

First time I have seen a Pads fan get it right! What I want to know is why they signle out the guy who actually caught the ball and not the 15 other D-bag fans who were attempting to catch it.

Truly the first time I have ever seen a Padres fan get it right. What is funny to me  is that they single out the guy that caught the ball, but what about the 15 other people reaching for it?
