Video: Yet another dad endangered his kid for a souvenir baseball

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.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
