When I got to work yesterday, everyone asked me if I’d seen the fan at Yankee Stadium who dropped two home runs the day before.
Yes, of course I had, and it was incredibly frustrating. This guy was sitting in THE spot for home runs, just behind the short porch in right field where I always TRY to sit…except there’s never an empty seat out there, even when the attendance is “only” 40,000. (Each of the last eight Yankees games has drawn over 52,000 fans, which is why I’ve stayed away.)
ESPN showed this guy’s lameness among the week’s top ten bloopers, and the Associated Press even wrote a story about him.
Whether or not a fan makes headlines for catching or dropping a ball, I’m glad to see my favorite hobby get some attention.
