According to Fox Sports Midwest, Christie made the left-handed catch off a hit from the Cardinals’ Paul DeJong.
One announcer made a quip about Christie’s controversial decision to spend time on a closed public beach with his family during a government shutdown in New Jersey, saying of the catch: “Nice to see him get from the beach here to the ballpark.”
Several others said they heard boos in the crowd for the governor, and one pointed out that he passed off the ball to a kid nearby.
