Sunday Night Baseball

Check out this funny story about a good friend of mine from college, Phil Elson, who just so happens to be the play-by-play announcer for the Arkansas Travelers. Of course, it begs the question of your most memorable foul ball catch, so post ’em here.

I’ve attended more than 1,200 games over the last 13 years or so and I’ve only caught three or maybe four. But the most memorable one came in 2001, when I was covering the Dodgers for and was interviewing Tommy Lasorda in the stands at Dodgertown for a story about the famed Spring Training site. As we were talking, a shot comes flying towards us and I literally threw my hand out in front of Tommy and snared it, thus receiving a big round of applause from everyone around us. Hard to forget something like that, as you might imagine.

Anyway, back to tonight’s game, we’re going for three out of four tonight against the team with the best record in baseball. Here who will be getting after it…
