My son and I are at the Missouri State-Oral Roberts game and not ten minutes after I went and bought a ball so we could play catch in the outfield grass, an Oral Rob players hits a home run right at us, I got it on a bounce, it also happened to break up a no-hitter. I did briefly consider throwing it back, to practice for Wrigley.

I had a foul liner hit at me once at a minor league game. My cousin and I (both little league players at the time) both whiffed and my mom snagged it barehanded.

We will never live that down.
And that's a bad miss...

Your mom sounds awesome.
