What would you do if you caught a World Series home run ball, only for it to be ripped out of your hands immediately and thrown out onto the field?
Such was the case for this woman in Houston Sunday night. She caught a Yasiel Puig home run ball in the top of the 9th inning, a ball that actually broke a World Series record for most home runs … and then it was ripped from her by this jerk.

It turns out that the woman and the man who took her ball are brother and sister-in-laws. That’s right — the two men beside her are brothers.
It’s going to be an awkward Thanksgiving.
Since it’s a Minute Maid Park tradition to throw back home run balls from the opposing team, the ball robber said he had no patience on his sister in law to throw it back and had to do it right away to avoid bad luck.
The internet feels terrible for her. I mean, just look at her face.
And notice the faces of the people around her. You can bet your entire salary the man on the right is tweeting about what he just saw.
Although the Dodgers scored another run to tie the game and force extra innings, the Astros won 13-12 in the 10th with an Alex Bregman walk-off hit.
