David Robinson Catches Foul Ball at San Antonio Missions Match

Spurs legend David Robinson, a part owner of the minor league baseball team, made headlines when he snagged a foul ball at the San Antonio Missions’ game on Sunday afternoon. Michael Smoak, a viewer, caught the moment on video, showing Robinson pumping his fist as the crowd cheered before flipping the ball to a guest in his box.

The Missions, the Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, fell 6-3 at Nelson Wolff Stadium, bringing their record to 10-10 on the year. Robinson is part of the new ownership group that took over the team in 2022, alongside fellow Spurs star Manu Ginobili.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg had the honor of throwing the ceremonial first pitch to Robinson during the Missions’ home opener. Robinson’s involvement with the team solidifies his connection to San Antonio, where he played for the Spurs as a Hall of Fame center for over a decade.
