I guess it's just a tradition thing with me. B-)

i got a ball at Salem Avalanche (A ball) and was as excited as if it had been major league...

i should have caught a homerun ball by Ricky Jordan at the vet... (i should have caught it in the face..) i was talking and not paying attention in the front row of the 500 section and the ball hit the bar right in front of me...

scared me to death...

I was handed a foul ball by the ball boy............but I've never caught one despite attending hundreds of games in the same seat <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> And it's about 7 rows back form the wall right beside third base.

I do have a few game balls though. One I found wedged between a seat about an hour before the game started, during BP. Another time, Mike Timlin threw me one from center field, and I caught it on a few bounces (he signed it after the game). I have another, can't remember how I got it. And at a game a long time ago, a couple players from the Jays were given CD Roms to throw into the crowd (CD was called "Catch This!") and Paul Spoljaric threw one right to me :-] .

I also got to sit in the Jays' dugout during BP one time, and me and my friend asked the trainer for a glove or a bat, and he said he couldn't do that, but gave us "Official Toronto Blue Jays Sweat Bands". You know, the ones for your wrists. Buck Martinez was an analyst back then (before his brief managerial days) and I talked to him a bit, but didn't think much of it cuz he wasn't very famous.

Also, when David Cone played for the Jays, he was two outs away from a no hitter against Texas, but Benji Gil (AKA: Texas' pre A-Rod SS) got a bloop hit to ruin it. The the next day I was at the game and Benji, while chasing a high foul ball, fell into the stands right near where I was sitting, and people starting heckling him for ruining the game the night before. That was kinda fun :-D
