One of the most enviable fan seats are those on the first row down the baselines, seems like they’re always getting ground balls or even soft toss free baseballs.  Plus you’re right there on the front row to see the action.  Just ask Steve Bartman! This Boston Red Sox fan’s dream turned into a nightmare (not quite a Bartman nightmare) when a relatively sharp grounder during the Sox playoff game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday  took a hop he couldn’t handle and clocked him in the face (via @Cut4 @dan_wohl)   Do not give this man a contract(via @dan_wohl / @Cut4) Maybe that’s why you bring a glove to the game? It’s not like this was on national TV or anything, I’m sure his coworkers will have a good laugh at his expense around the water cooler on Monday!
