I have actually caught two foul balls during games....the first was in 1984 in Baltimore...and I caught a ball on the 3B line fouled by Rick Dauer..and the second was fouled by a Cubbie in 1999 in Atlanta...and yep you guessed it it was by Kid K himself...Jose Hernandez.....not very popular players...but still, two game balls that sit on my mantle... ;-D

what i love about foul balls is that they are worth more to the one ho catches it becuase its rare. Like 20 people get them out of 40,000 people

If you catch a foul ball on the fly at a Texas Ranger game, you get an "honorary" Texas Ranger contract! Pretty cool huh? I'm still trying to get one.

August 16, 1998 I was on the homerun porch at Jacob's Field and caught a homerun ball hit by Travis Fryman. I kept the ticket and tried to get the ball singed after the game but the jerk got in his Dodge Ram and drove off LMAO. I was't all that pissed though because I did get the ball which will probably never happen again.

Back in the 80's i caught Ben Olgovies hr. Forget how his name is spelled. Caught a Terry Steinbach foul ball off Mark Langston. Albert Belle threw me a ball. Got Derek Jeters foul ball off Jose Mesa in the 00 ALDS. I have dropped 2, once a foul ball barehanded, and a hr at the top of wall. I only hit 1 or 2 games a year, so i guess i have beaten the odds somewhat. I used to take glove to game, but i don't anymore.

Beating the odds is right. Not bad for a couple games a year! 8-o
