  • How can you not hear a 3 year old fan crying when right next to you?

    http://network.yardbarker.com/mlb/ar...g_fan/10658216

    The couple from that Rangers/NY Game are wanting an appologey because there claiming they never heard the kid screaming there head off. But how can you not when he is right next to you? That seems impossible and a little fair fetched to me.

    Maybe they were like millions of other people who tune it out when someone else's kid is crying.

      I'm probably in the minority on this one, but I don't buy into this "baseball is for kids" mindset where an adult who legitimately, fair and square, catches a foul ball is obligated to give it to a kid. Back in 2009, someone posted how, after a player tossed him a ball during a game, no less than three fathers approached him and asked him to give the ball to their kid - and two of them cursed him out when he refused to do so.

      Baseball is for EVERYBODY regardless of age. And in my case, I wasn't a big fan of baseball as a kid. One game a year was enough for me, and even then I was more interested in the view from Shea Stadium's upper deck and the lights on the scoreboard than I was in what was happening on the field. I wouldn't have appreciated the significance of getting a ball back then - in fact, I didn't develop a serious interest in baseball until I was in my 20s.

      There are adults who would treasure a foul ball just as much - or even more - than a kid.

        Agreed. It's one thing if a player tosses a ball to a kid and an adult snatches it, it's another if it is just a random toss up for grabs or a foul ball. Tough luck to the little kid and Michael Kay totally skewed the situation into something it wasn't. They were not taunting the kid, they were just taking pics of themselves with the ball.

          This really did not need to be a national story. There was no need for the media to throw a fit like they did and no need for the kid's family to be on national TV this morning..

            I would have given it to the kid, but I don't blame the brunette for keeping the ball.
            Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

            If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

              You're not in the minority, you are 100% right. If that kid wants one, let him catch it on his own. I would never give it up.

                There's no way in hell that couple could NOT have known that kid was crying right next to them. It was so obvious.

                The least they could have done is look suitably guilty, not gloat like they did.

                  3 year olds can't even remember going to a baseball game....why take your crying kid there and ruin it for EVERYONE nearby?

                    They caught it fair and square, didn't they? They didn't pull it out of his hands.

                      I don't care how they caught it. They still gloated. Knowing full well the kid was right next to them.

                        If they held the ball up to his face, I'd agree with you. What are you supposed to do, look around to see who's next to you before you cheer?

                          I don't believe they gloated. The announcer made a reference to them rubbing it in the kid's face or something like that, and at a quick glance it appears the woman was actually teasing him when she was actually posing for a photo. Even if they heard a kid crying, it wouldn't necessarily have meant he was crying over the ball. It wasn't like they snagged it from the kid.

                            they did nothing wrong. Another example of Michael Kaye being a buffoon

                              Since when are you required to give a foul ball to the nearest kid next to you?

                              I don't care if you are 8 or 80; getting a ball at a game is a thrill and a reward. It's not just kids who enjoy it. There's something special about holding a baseball in your hands that was used in the middle of a major league baseball game.

                              So I'm sorry, I don't buy into the theory that you have to give a crying kid a ball just because he or she didn't catch it and you did. It's ridiculous.

                              This all comes off like an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
