Are you too cool to bring your glove?
That's what most people say, which is why 99 percent of the time when a ball goes into the stands, an all-star-like display of clumsiness ensues.
No matter the excuse for unpreparedness, though, every fan wants to make a spectacular catch and hand the ball to the little kid next to them. Darn societal conscience.
It's the hole-in-one of fandom, a cementing of team loyalty, and a complete crapshoot. Some fans have risen above the fray, though, and into our hearts through impressive displays of athleticism and trickery. Here is the handful of fans out of millions who inspire us to wield beers instead of gloves at the ballpark.
We thank you.
