Jermaine Jackson gloves foul ball in L.A.
Singer makes nice catch behind Dodgers dugout Friday night
By Doug Miller / MLB.com
Jermaine, the singing brother of the late pop icon Michael Jackson and the original lead singer of the Jackson 5, was sitting in the Dugout Club right behind the Dodgers dugout during the home team's 9-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
In the bottom of the second inning, Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal lifted a foul ball toward the area where Jackson was sitting, and Jackson didn't hesitate. Jermaine, a right-hander wearing a Manny Ramirez No. 99 jersey, made a nifty backhanded grab and celebrated the snatching of the souvenir.
Not surprisingly, Jermaine caught the ball while wearing one glove. A baseball glove.
