Bat Man Takes in a Bisons/PawSox Game

batbatcrowdDespite having gone to many baseball games I have never caught a foul ball. Not since a Little League game have I managed to snag one, I was close twice, but never close enough. I’ve certainly never been in a good enough spot to score a bat if one of the hitters accidentally let loose. I would be way WAY more psyched to get a bat than a ball. Plus, catching a bat is about 78% more bad-ass.

However, the Erie County Health Department is trying to find an as yet unknown fan who caught a live bat at a AAA game between the Buffalo Bisons and Pawtucket Red Sox. During Tuesday’s game the man reached out and snagged the nominally nocturnal creature, much to the chagrin of some health department employees who were also in the stands.

The brave fan released the bat after holding it for a brief time.

Heads Up!

This picture tickles me; it has it all, the weird Seinfeld-looking guy in the middle, Palesy McScared Face, old Braves fan who looks like Rip Torn, Mr. Tough in the yellow shirt and of course, all the way at the top, Anxious Fred.

(If you’re one of those people who wants to know the details, the photo information is here.)
