Man at Houston Astros game gets a foul ball, but.....

As a fan at Houston’s Minute Maid Park scrambled for a foul ball during an Astros game, cameras captured what appeared to be a handgun sticking out of the waistline of his pants. The man then seemed to realize his gun was showing and subtly try to cover it with his Superman T-shirt.


Though gun owners may obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun in the state of Texas, it is illegal to do so at a professional or amateur sporting event.


MLB ramped up its security and implemented metal detectors at all 30 parks for 2015. So either this fellow is an undercover cop who chooses to carry his weapon jammed into the waist of his jeans, or those security measures are not 100% failsafe.

He was an undercover cop.


Yup, you are right:


But as it turns out, the man was a police officer in plain clothes, one of the several thousand who were on-hand Monday to help support the son of slain Houston officer Richard Martin.
