Speeder, Kid Grab Historic Homers

One Red Sox fan got pulled over by the cops for speeding, walked into Fenway and ended his night giving a special gift to David Ortiz.   

It's a night Joel McGrath won't forget.  Late to the Red Sox game, he got caught speeding.  Not good.

His late arrival put him in the right place at the right time, though.  As he entered the park, David Ortiz was hitting the home run that set a new franchise record and McGrath snared it.

Big Papi's night wasn't done though.  His 52nd homer of the season landed in the bleachers where some older fans turned it over to a kid.  Aww….

The ball Ortiz hit for his 50th home run will go into a charity auction.
