Kirk Head says he bought seats in the Crawford boxes with the intent of catching a Dodger home run and throwing the ball back. He didn't plan on having to pry it from his sister-in-law's grip in order to make that happen.

Yasiel Puig's two-run homer sailed into the Crawford boxes over left field.

"It just felt like...really, that ball was in slow motion, coming at you, falling out of the sky slowly at you," said Sarah Head, who caught the home run ball in the top of the 9th inning.

The ball bounced off another fan's glove and Sarah found herself holding it. "A few seconds, you're like, 'Oh my gosh, I caught the ball.' Then you're like, 'Oh! Oh! There goes the ball!" Sarah said, with a laugh.

Sarah's brother-in-law ripped it from her grasp, and lobbed it back on the field.
