(DETROIT) WXYZ - Diehard Tigers fans and longtime season ticket holders, Mark Beauchamp and John Bendzinski, talked to Action News about the nail-biting moments in the 7th inning of game four between the hometown team and the Oakland A's.
Bendzinski describes a "sickening" feeling during the review of the fly ball he and Beauchamp tried to catch, causing the A's to call fan interference.
The A's argued that right fielder Josh Reddick could have caught the ball that referees called a homerun had it not been for Beauchamp then Bendzinski grabbing for the coveted souvenir.
"I'm like a little kid again. You know, ten-years-old. I wanna catch the fly balls," said Beauchamp.
After a review, referees upheld the homerun and Tigers fans roared.
"Euphoria" is how Beauchamp described his joy and relief that they didn't interfere with a homerun hit by Victor Martinez. "I was just happy as heck to see the umpire come out and give it the homerun."
Bendzinski, owner and head chef at Capitol Banquet Center in Washington Township, said everyone was going "bananas" and Comerica Park was "vibrating there was so much electricity."
