Have you ever been lucky enough to catch a homerun ball? How about a foul ball?
I went to a Yankees game in the June of '06 and I got there as soon as the gates opened. It really paid off as I got a Derek Jeter batting practice homerun ball. Although it wasn't in the game it is still pretty cool. Also later in the game, I was about 5 feet from catching a Jorge Posada homerun. When I go to the Louisville Bats games I have a lot of success but not catching anything. I get a ball tossed to me almost everygame.

A friend and I were at an Astros game and got up to get something to eat. As I was watching the screen waiting to order, and hearing the loud cheer that comes with a homerun, I noticed that the ball hit right where I had been sitting. (I could tell because of the large flower boxes they have placed there and the people that were sitting next to me.) By the way, the people sitting next to me took MY Bagwell homerun ball home. The nachos were good but not THAT good. -Vickie


I collect Jeff Bagwell.

On September 5th of this year, I was on TV for a good 10 seconds when I got a line-drive foul ball off the bat of Mark Teixeira at the Braves-Phillies game. The ball was coming at me at atleast 100mph or more. I caught it so easily and they actually showed a replay of me catching the ball and the announcers were comparing me to some other player on how I caught the ball. Pretty sweet and I got it on video on my website

The video is at the bottom of the page:

I also Caught one at Miller park that Tom Gordon threw to my daughter while shaggin fly balls in the outfield during batting practice.

Great thread...very entertaining reads.... smile.gif


"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...

My dad caught foul ball for me at Miller park in the air, on the 2nd deck behind home plate...It was the last game of the year (2004 I believe) and they were playing the Diamondbacks...James Mouton popped it up, and there is a big black mark on the ball from his bat. This past summer I caught a Carlos Lee batting practice home run ball in the upper deck in left field of Miller park, that was pretty neat considering Lee is a former Brewer.


I collect all cards of Ernie Sims (77/460=16.74%), Brett Favre (321/11536=2.78% :P), and Alando Tucker (14/398 = 3.51%)

I only have a foul ball to claim. At a Colorado Springs Sky Sox game. Took my Dad there for $2 beer night. Standing in line for you guessed it...beer. It bounced off three things before I caught it one handed while holding a beer (that I didn't spill) in the other. And I had about 8 beers before hand. It was an amazing feat for the... ummm 'conditions' that I faced. Guess you had to be there huh.gif

This is'nt catching anything, But in 2005 My kids were picked to be part of Culvers major League moment at Miller park, the pics below are my son at Home plate with The umps and Damien Miller wondering what to do since the game is about to start, and my Daughter running from 1st behind Ryan Freel. She was at 1st with Lyle Overbay
Overbay hit for the cycle and went 5-5 that day too with I think 7-8 RBI.

The Pic Of Ken Griffey Jr. ( top) was taken right before he turned to me with a Double take.. ( I"m 6"10") and had a look on his face like I was the tallest white guy he'd seen since Randy Johnson..lol.

The pics below are them getting introduced over the P.A. system and their pics on the jumbotron, the bottom one is them standing at their respective bases.

I have other pics too, but they are kinda hard to see since the way I scanned them.

well, it wasnt me but, last summer at the HS playoffs, a ball was hit behind home plate into the crowd.
at first the guy looked like he was going to let it go over him, but then he sort of adjusts in his seat, and caught the ball 1 handed while talking on his cell phone, and the whole crowd was cheering

this isnt about sports but,
we have assemblys at school, and they were giving away candy bars, so a kid won a candy bar, didnt want it so he threw it in our section.
i was watching it go, and all of a sudden, this kid who is 6'7", reaches out and snatches it out of the air
the look on the persons face who was about to catch it was hilarious
