A commentator and a young baseball fan showed the extent of their talent in American stadiums.
Train to do as well as their idols. In the United States, two baseball fans have shown that they are particularly good at catching bullets at phenomenal speeds.
The first to excel is a sports commentator who serves for the NCAA, the American University League, as told by the website “ballecourbe.ca”. While commenting on the game between West Virginia and Texas, the batter sent an ugly ball to his left.
The latter flew over a few spectators who were accepted in the enclosure, to reach the boxes of the commentators. With a calm Olympian, Geoff Haxton, who brought the game to life on the radio, took the ball with one hand, while continuing to describe the action.
“My hand hurts so much right now!” (editor’s note: my hand is so sore now!) he said to his colleague and all the listeners, as he rejoiced over the cheers from the audience just below.
The league even selected him and ranked first in his actions of the week.
A childhood dream
Another great story this time comes from a meeting between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Atlanta Braves. For his first baseball game at a stadium, young Cordell McLerran has stolen the priority from Kole Calhoun of the Diamondbacks.
On another bad ball, but to the right this time, the Arizona outfielder had done everything to catch it. It was without counting the envy of the young fan, who had taken his baseball glove.
With a tense smile but a very good player, the athlete decided to congratulate the 13-year-old spectator and even reward him with a “check” fist to fist.
After the meeting, a reporter from “Bally Sports South” went to the one everyone wanted to say hello to. According to him, the Diamondbacks player said to him, “You caught it, let me catch the next one.” This was not enough, since the game was eventually won 5-4 by the Braves.
