The Most Darling Moment of the Baseball Season

Friday’s Tigers/Blue Jays game featured a very special visitor to the mound; a 6-year-old boy in the stands who jumped out of the stands at the end of the 7th inning and went straight towards the mound. His hat falling off his head, the little boy grabbed the ball that was left on the mound for the Tigers’ next pitcher and ran back to the stands.

Security was obviously caught unawares but in a surprising bit of decency, and conferring with a police office and the boy’s uncle who was in the crowd they allowed the boy to go back to his seats and to keep the ball.

According to the uncle, his nephew misunderstood when he suggested that he go to the railing and try and get a ball. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.

I’m trying to find video of it, but so far it eludes me. Don’t worry though, I’m on the case!

Chris Young Just Needs a Hug

Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder Chris Young only two years ago nearly went 30-30 in his rookie season. Instead of building upon that extraordinary debut, Young has seen his average plummet to Mendoza levels and his power and steals dropping off too. So, in the 9th inning of last night’s game one cute fan figured out exactly what it is he needed, a hug! So she did the only rational thing, jumped onto the field and gave him one. Fortunately for her, the security forces were much much nicer than they normally are to a dude who gets on the field and took her away without tackling her.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s a shame when such a cute girl needs to be arrested. Although, handcuffs can be fun…
