A Blue Jays fan was caught on camera Friday evening causing fan interference by catching a foul ball along the first baseline — and if you are a fan of TheBlaze, you’ll likely recognize him.
Video footage posted to the MLB’s official website, and played throughout the night on ESPN, shows Stu Burguiere — executive producer of The Glenn Beck Program — reach over into foul territory and catch a foul ball off center fielder Colby Rasmus’ bat.
Company CEO Christopher Balfe was also seen in the shot at the Toronto game smiling.
Burguiere’s catch came as Tampa Bay Rays player James Loney slid in an attempt to make the play. However, despite Loney being robbed of the ball by TheBlaze’s very own radio and TV personality, the umpire ultimately ruled Burguiere’s catch as fan interference and called Rasmus out.
“It’s a nice baseball, and he’ll get to have it, but he’s probably going to lose that seat though,” one of the television announcers commented.
“If they haven’t removed him yet, (Blue Jays manager) John Gibbons will make a phone call,” the other announcer said.
It was not clear if Burguiere did ultimately lose his seat, but the Blue Jays did end up losing the game to the Rays 8-0.
