Re: Daily Times: Millennium Sunday Roundup - A first baseman's mitt is legal for outfielders in the ASA

His pants may have been falling down, and he may have been wearing sneakers, and stumbling and bumbling as he went back to track that ball to make one heck of snare with his first basemen's mitt. Those elements may have all been against him but the 15 mph wind gusts blowing in from I-95 I believe used his over-sized sagging shorts as a sail and lifted him into the air while simutaneously dampening Tyler Elko's blast to left field. Usually I'm in huge favor of these conditions at our home field at Manor Field it's hi-arc equivalent to Petco park, but for one brief moment I just wish the wind had settled to let that blast reach it's full potential. It was one heck of game saving catch, and a nice split between friends.
Tell Rob he got me pretty good, but it was my own fault for not sliding and trying to get in his way to break up the double play. I knew he had that surgery so I didn't want to go low on him, and than I was a deer in the head lights when the throw actually came.
As always Ant it was fun
