I was looking back through my Moleskine notebook today, and came across this little gem: On May 11, 2008, Joe Morgan, former second baseman for my beloved Cincinnati Reds was on ESPN doing color commentary for the Boston Red Sox - Minnesota Twins game.
A foul ball was hit into the stands, and it was caught by a fan wearing a baseball glove.
Joe Morgan said, "Anyone can catch a foul ball with a glove. I'm impressed by the guy who catches it with his hands. If I'm putting together a top ten list of catches, I want someone who catches it with his bare hands."
The same batter hit another foul ball into the stands. And Joe said, "Let's see if someone can get a bare hand job there."
Stay classy, Joe.
