Perhaps in the recesses of his subconscious the thought flashed across his mind: “I can have other sons but I may never get the chance to catch another Grand Slam homer.”
In the end he didn’t even catch the ball but the little boy, we’re presuming is his son, got himself a good trampling all the same.
This happened in last night’s game between the Seattle Mariners and the Chicago White Sox at Safeco Field in Seattle. Trailing 5-1 at the bottom of the 14th inning with the bases loaded, Seattle’s Kyle Seager stepped up and hit a grand slam to tie the game. One fan was so keen to get this momento that he may well have been prepared to get in to a fist fight with the small boy. In the end he only had to barge him over as this animated GIF illustrates. Seattle ended up losing the game in the 7th extra inning. We have no news on the boy or the ball.
