From the “Because It’s Friday, That’s Why” file:
We have contemplated in this space a number of times over the years about catching foul balls or homeruns at baseball games and the unchecked items on a life’s bucket list.
We can only imagine that the joy would be like that of a fan in the bleachers at Cleveland’s Progressive Field last night.
That’s a solid read by the fan. As the ball was launched, he had to judge the flight, run down a few stairs, position himself in the gangway and make the catch.
And he also had to be the guy who endured the ribbing of his friends for bringing a glove to the game.
