LOS ANGELES (WHDH) - One lucky Red Sox fan left Dodger Stadium with a one-of-a-kind souvenir after catching pitcher David Price’s hat as he celebrated the team’s World Series championship.
Price threw his 2018 World Series hat into the crowd following Boston’s 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Cole Flashner, who was sitting behind the Red Sox dugout, caught the baseball cap.
“He said he didn’t want the hat because it smelled bad,” Flashner said of Price. “I don’t really care about the smell. It’s the smell of victory and I’ll keep it forever.”
Price says he threw his hat as a way of saying thanks to the fans.
“I appreciate those fans sticking around, rooting us on and I just wanted to give them a little piece of tonight,” he said.
Price pitched seven innings, allowing only three hits and one run.
