OMAHA–Perhaps ornery from a Friday without baseball, the Rosenblatt Stadium crowd was even more harsh than usual when the ball girl behind home plate misplayed back-to-back foul balls off the screen. The second one picked up speed as it rolled down the screen from the press box, and the ball girl misread it, allowing it to kick over her head and toward home plate. The crowd showered her with boos, but she got a shot at redemption a few pitches later. Once again, she misread the ball, but she recovered with an acrobatic barehanded grab reminiscent of Kevin Mitchell’s barehanded catch on a foul ball years ago. This time, the crowd rewarded her with a hearty ovation.
(Hopefully this doesn’t count as play-by-play–I’d hate to be ejected from the press box during the CWS Finals . . . )
