Home Run Naz

I like the decision to let little kids shag balls during the HR derby -- in our litigious society it seems so much is deemed unsafe without ever letting those inclined to try it figure it out on their own.

That said, holy shit what a bad idea.

Theoretically MLB players are the best hitters of baseballs on earth, and the HR derby group is comprised of guys known for mashing the ball harder than most MLB players. Little kids, one the other hand, aren't known for their catching or reacting or anything other than fucking around and having fun. So it makes perfect sense to put the two together. And boy was that one kid fucking around when Rios almost took his head off. As the ball hit the fence the kid finally reacted to it whizzing by his head. Awesome.
