Chris Rock isn't Jim Harbaugh, that's for sure. Which is to say, the famous comedian very obviously isn't a foul-ball hawk when he visits a baseball stadium.

At Thursday's Houston Astros-New York Yankees game at Yankee Stadium (which the Yankees won 3-0), Rock was seated right behind the visitor's dugout. Jon Singleton of the Astros hit a looping foul ball toward Rock's seat. The comic didn't make a great play on it. He stood up, holding his phone in one hand, sort of trying to catch the ball, sort of trying to protect his head.

But the ball landed and Rock reached down and grabbed it, so it was his. Just not for long.

He immediately found a kid sitting nearby and handed the ball off. Chris Rock's a smart man. He knows people of the Internet would have whined and complained if he kept the ball, the rich getting richer and whatnot.

Harbaugh, however, probably thinks Rock needs some practice. The intense head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, as we learned recently, brings his glove to every baseball game he attends because getting a ball is his "main focus."

That's pretty much the difference between a comedian and a football coach, isn't it? Or, maybe just any other person and Jim Harbaugh.
