Just like this recent post, the error here can be discovered by watching the video that's embedded in the article ("Video: Young fan catches foul ball, gives it away to older fan" on Yahoo! Canada Sports on August 10, 2011). As the article states, earlier in the game the older fan had obtained a foul ball and given it to the younger fan. Later, when the younger fan caught a foul ball of his own, he quickly handed the first foul ball back to the older fan. Even the headline is wrong. There were many comments on the article stating what actually happened, but no change to the article or the headline was made, and now - mysteriously - there is no comment section.
