Crowd boos, announcer picks on Christie as governor catches foul at Mets game
NEW YORK — Gov. Chris Christie's own summer of hell continues, with boos during a Mets game at Citi Field on Tuesday night.
Sitting along the first-base line near the Mets' dugout, next to his daughter Bridget, the governor made a left-handed catch of a foul off the bat of Paul DeJong in the third inning. He got up and high-fived a couple of fans around him, including a fan who had been running down the aisle in hopes of grabbing the ball himself.
As some of the crowd booed, Christie handed the ball to a boy sitting a couple rows behind him. A video on MLB.com shows Christie signing the ball for the young boy.
Dan McLaughlin on Fox Sports West couldn't resist a dig at the governor on the Cardinals' broadcast of the game.
"Nice to see him get from the beach here from the ballpark," McLaughlin said.
