Foul Ball

When I was a little boy, I always brought my glove when I went to watch the Kansas City Royals in hopes of catching a foul ball. Sometime in college, having never realized the foul ball dream, I stopped bringing my glove as often. But last night, with great seats on the front row of the mezzanine level at Kauffman Stadium, I decided to dust off the glove once again. And lo and behold, in the 5th inning David DeJesus hit a foul ball into the stands behind 3rd base. It was one of those times where the ball is hit and you immediately get tunnel vision not realizing that you are climbing over two men and a little boy as you stretch out your glove hand to snatch the ball out of the air...or at least that's how it went down for me. But I got the ball, and with it a dream came true.

This was fun to read! I can tell you had fun. We played baseball in the pool last and I caught lots of fly balls...I know how your are feeling.
