Padres Ballgirl Makes a Spectacular Line Drive Snag (Video)
Most of the time, the ballboys and ballgirls at baseball and tennis matches get publicity for their screw-ups, rather than their successes. However, every so often, they’re able to get a little credit for a job well done. Thankfully, this is one such instance.
At Petco Park, Matt Kemp ripped a line drive foul down the third base line, and it was actually heading for the first row of the stands before a nameless Padres ballgirl made a jumping catch to snag the hard-hit ball out of the air, and likely save someone from a concussion. Or at least a spilled beer.
Here’e the clip:
Hopefully, she’s playing some type of organized softball or baseball, because her talents need to be shared with the world. I hope she got a game ball for this one!
