Every time we post one of these the father in me shakes his head and thinks that the guy in question is a moron for risking his kid’s safety for a baseball. Then someone else comes out and says “hey, the kid is fine, quite worrying.” I’d love to see the percentage of folks who say stuff like that are parents too, but I suppose that gets us into the sorts of arguments that go beyond baseball.
But really, you’re an idiot if you risk injuring your kid to get a baseball.
Anyway, the latest example came last night in the Angels-Sox game following Albert Pujols’ homer. And yes, my assessment of idiocy applies even if it’s a home run ball from a future Hall of Famer like Albert Pujols.
