What if an OF snags a HR ball, but ends up over the fence?

I would just be shocked to see Sheff jump that high.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

I have actually scene this ruled upon. It is an out and a dead ball any runners on base are given one base (same principal as throwing the ball into the dugout or whatever).

So what if a ball is popped up, caught in the air by a large bird (a gull or hawk or whatever) and the bird flies away over the RF fence. HR or not?

If a player catches a ball with his cup he deserves the out. :-o

Indeed. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
