In the early moments of Saturday's Red Sox-Rays game (GameTracker), a Sox-rooting interloper at Tropicana Field was perhaps a bit too exuberant in snow-coning this well-struck baseball off the bat of DH/warrior-poet David Ortiz ...

The guess here is that the ball would've struck the lip of the wall, but there's very much a non-zero chance that it would've bounced over for a home run. Instead, it's a double via fan interference.

Still, a nod to the fan in question for easing the ball back over the line and issuing an immediate denial of wrongdoing via vigorous head-shake. Dispensation granted.
