Hmm... One out of forever, maybe? Thats insane... And he lobbied for a screen to protect from exactly this sort of thing happening?? I'll bet the park will do something about this by the end of the week now...

That has got to be one of the most ironic things that I've ever read about. Hopefully she'll be ok, and doesn't take it out on her husband. I guess he was right about the safety net, eh?

I'll bet the park will do something about this by the end of the week now... Well, this is Peter Angelos we're talking about here. Crazier things have happened in ballparks to be sure, but this is pretty odd. Not to mention, because she wasn't hurt too badly, hilarious.

This is almost as good as Chuck Knoblauch hitting Keith Olbermann's (still with ESPN at that point) mother in the face with an errant throw from second base.
