My 13 year old son went to his first major league baseball game last night (he's not much into sports or we would have taken him sooner.)
He and his Dad went to see our Texas Rangers take on the Yankees. They had box seats at the Ballpark In Arlington. It was a memorable night. The Rangers won in extra innings and....
...my son got hit with a foul ball off the bat of A-Rod. He got hit in the shoulder after the ball skimmed the seat in front of him so thankfully he wasn't injured. Did he get to keep the ball you ask? Nope. While my husband and surrounding nice fans and a stadium official checked to see that my son was okay, the guy sitting behind them scooped up the ball and kept it. Everyone saw him get the ball and keep it instead of giving it to a kid who got hit with it. Seriously.
