[UPDATE] See the comments. It Longoria says it was a lucky trinket, and that it was returned after the at bat.
A strange scene played out during the broadcast last night in the 8th inning as Evan Longoria stood in the on deck area. And by “strange” we of course mean strange to most men who will never experience what it is like to be a major league baseball player and have a young attractive female fan hand us something.
The scene starts innocent enough. Longoria walks over to the wall and appears to be chatting up a guy in a Red Sox cap. We have sat in these seats enough times to know this happens all the time. But after the camera cuts away to BJ Upton’s at bat, and then back to Longoria, we see a young lady on the left holding out something that Longoria grabs and places in his pocket.
Did she ask for a birthday RT? Was it her grandmother’s recipe for New England Clam Chowder? Yep. That’s gotta be it.
