OK, so it was the baseball kind. And the former Jackson 5 member was basically just catching a foul ball that made its way to the section of Dodger Stadium where he’d been sitting on Friday night. But still!
In the bottom of the second inning, Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal lifted a foul ball toward the area where Jackson was sitting, and Jackson didn’t hesitate. Jermaine, a right-hander wearing a Manny Ramirez No. 99 jersey, made a nifty backhanded grab and celebrated the snatching of the souvenir.
There’s something about him wearing a Manny jersey that makes this story extra poignant. Almost too good to be true, even!
