If the ball is fieldable by a player and a fan touches the ball first, it is interference. Just ask the Red Sox. If DD doesn't reach over the fence to grab a ball, she should be good. But if she and the player go after it at the same time, she had better yield or risk the ire of a ballpark full of fans and the home town.
