    Wasn't that just the greatest? Hubby and I watched it and got a big laugh. I also wondered about the folks below who never imagined that a ball caught by a fan would ever be thrown back! LOOK OUT BELOW! LOL!

    I was a little tired of watching drunk HOFers, Rude tennis players and Buffalo Bills fans who are stupid beyond belief.

    I just got to watch their interview on The Today Show. Jayson Werth sent along an autographed ball for them and they all got Phillies shirts. Really cool!

    Thanks for letting me know what the "surprise" was. I am getting ready to leave for work and The Today Show is just starting here. Plus, I usually watch Good Morning America. That was a very nice thing to do for them.

    Wasn't that just precious? What else do you do with a ball at a game?? You throw it back.....

    I saw them this morning on the Today show too. It's a great story.


    I've been Boo'd...
    Thanks Barry!

    That was adorable. I saw it on the Internet, local news and national news last night! Refreshing after all of the bad behavior lately. I'm glad they got stuff from the Phillies...what a nice treat.

    I need to chime in on this one.

    The throwing back of balls may have started in Chicago at Wrigley.

    The visiting team homers were tossed back onto the field from the ranks of the Bleacher Bums. The Homer's homers are kept.

    I do not know what the 'protocol' for foul balls is, but the practice has spread to other ballparks and it changes from city to city.

    Our local paper had an article about them and it gave their address. Honestly, don't they think there has been enough papparrazzi (sp?) in their lives lately without giving out that info? Actually, these folks live about a mile from me. I could walk there if I was feeling energetic. How cool is that?
