Listen, I know what it feels like to live that foul ball/home run ball life. I want one, and I want one badly. If I ever catch one, there’s zero percent chance that I would give it to a kid. I earned that shit. Little kids have their whole lives to get one themselves. This one is mine. I did my time. I’ve come close. Real close, actually, to the point where I think that was my one shot, and I blew it. I almost harakiri’d myself right then and there.
But this fuckin’ guy down in spring training — what the fuck was that? If you’re a grown man, and you bring a glove to a professional baseball game, you’ve already lost. But then you have a home run ball hit directly to you, there’s nobody else in arm’s length even making an attempt to catch the same ball as you, and not only do you not catch it, but you bust out this move that makes you look like a god damn salmon jumping out of the water.
Honestly, if I were working security in the outfield, I would’ve ejected this man and tried to press charges to the fullest extent of the law. In my opinion, if you’re over the age of 12, you should have your glove confiscated at the gate. And if you somehow get a glove into the ballpark, and make a play as bad as this guy, you should be arrested. #MakeBaseballGreatAgain
