David Ortiz hit his 441st and 442nd career home run Wednesday at Target Field in Minneapolis. One of them wound up in the hands of a young fan. For some reason an adult woman (with adult beverage in hand) got very VERY upset the kid didn’t want to throw a souvenir back onto the playing surface. Adult langauge and adult gestures were exchanged. Fortunately (or unfortunately for human society) cameras caught the incident.
Again it makes you wonder, what is it about a souvenir baseball that draws out our baser instincts?
It’s just a damn baseball.
