Sitting in the front row behind a team’s dugout is a prime spot to get a foul ball or have a player flip you a ball during the game.

Bring a Yankees hat to place over your Red Sox hat during those opportune moments.
During the 3rd inning of the Yankees/Red Sox game on Fox, Yankees 3rd base coach Rob Thomson fielded a foul ball and when he flipped it to the stands he aimed towards the [Fake] Yankees fan.
