Vinny Rottino's first homer is fan's first souvenir

During the first inning of Saturday's Padres-Mets game at Citi Field, Tommy Ozelski caught Vinny Rottino's first career homer.

The native of Bayside, NY, is a huge Mets fan and has attended many games over the years. But this was the first ball he's ever caught, and he was more than proud of it.

Ozelski later exchanged the souvenir for a signed, game-used Rottino bat and autographed ball.
