Hard-Hit Foul Ball Immediately Leaves Mark on Texas Rangers Fan

One couple left Globe Life Park in Arlington on Wednesday with a baseball and a memory, all thanks to a foul ball.

During the sixth inning of Wednesday's Houston Astros-Texas Rangers game, the Astros' Jon Singleton scorched a foul liner down the first-base line. It was the type of foul ball that you'd better be paying attention to if you have seats that close to the field.

Although nobody appeared to be hurt, the man who "caught" the foul ball had a wicked bruise from the liner.

The couple needs to get that ball signed by Singleton and Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish in order to put this moment over the top.

After the game, the bruise looked a bit better:
