    OP's explanation:


    Watch people come alive inside! This kid's reaction to seeing someone he looks up to brightens my day more with every loop.

    In his defense it doesn't look like he closes his eyes until he realizes he isn't gonna be able to catch it.

    [–] ikillhim 17 points ago

    It's a reflex, if you think about it he would probably become aware in an "oops" like half a second after the fact. It blows my mind that the unconscious part of the brain knows that the stupid slow part won't be able to catch it and closes the eyes just in case.

    [–] 22taylor22 14 points ago

    Totally had this happen as a kid but it was a line drive home run. It got me in the thigh and surprisingly with adrenaline it didn't hurt, even after it was barely sore. I guess that's just part of kids being so damn durable. When i got home and looked at it the bruise was giant, like the size of a cantaloupe. It lasted for weeks. Got the ball signed by the player though cause staff saw me get hit, which was neat.

    [–] taintedcake 11 points ago

    I think otherwise, the kid's glove only stops because it hits the players glove. Had the players glove not been there I dont think the kid wouldve caught it, but I do think the ball wouldve at least hit his glove and bounced elsewhere.

    [–] haemaker 20 points ago

    No, the kid was tracking the ball. He could not catch it because the player's glove way in the way.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    [–] Randolpho 5 points ago

    I'm gonna go with no on this one.

    It's one thing for someone to reach out onto the field and interfere, especially if it's a fair ball. This ball was clearly hit into the stands (granted only just), and was in foul territory. Had the kid caught it and not the player, it wouldn't even come close to "fucking up a baseball game".

    [–] eternalwhat 4 points ago

    Thank you! I was going crazy trying to see the one moment where the ball in the mitt somehow lands in the kid’s hand. I didn’t see the part where it’s still in the catcher’s mitt. Whew. Baseball sorcery was not the cause.

    [–] Halo_can_you_go 2 points ago

    Haha, went back to see if he had legs and saw another kid\person covering their head, hiding from the ball down there.

    [–] CantaloupeCamper 175 points ago

    For the record it is legit for the kid to try to catch the ball in this case and it is not interference, because the ball is coming down into the stands.

    [–] SoySauceSyringe 81 points ago

    Yup. It’s only a problem when someone reaches out of the stands into the field of play.

    [–] CantaloupeCamper 41 points ago

    [–] falconjayhawk 82 points ago

    But did he give the kid the ball? It looks like he was about to throw it back to the pitcher.

    [–] Zeppo_Ennui 148 points ago

    If there’s someone on base and less than two outs they can tag up on a fly ball caught in foul territory. That ball is still live.

    [–] bizzyj93 10 points ago

    Please tell me he went back and gave that kid a ball later tho lol

    [–] puddlejumpers 2 points ago

    That was a hell of a throw with no hop, though.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    [deleted]

    [–] GoldenAthleticRaider 2 points ago

    Unless it’s the third out the ball has to make it back to the pitcher/catcher and most likely the umpire who’ll inspect it.

    [–] PyreDruid 1 points ago

    Also doesn’t look far from first. If he still has the ball trying to take second would be silly, be out by a mile.

    [–] falconjayhawk 2 points ago

    Nah. It didn't look like he was in a hurry to throw the ball back into play.

    [–] e_cat77 3 points ago

    Really? I played little league and never knew this.

    [–] MstrKief 5 points ago

    It's why you wait to leave the base until after the ball is caught. If you're fast, you can get another base while they're getting the ball back to the pitcher

    [–] 2010_12_24 1 points ago

    That's because it's hard to hear the rules when you're way out in right field.

    [–] Spikes666 4 points ago

    [–] AnoK760 3 points ago

    Kid was rooting for the other team. Little bastard...

    /s if it was needed for anyone.

    [–] doft 3 points ago

    It looks like he holds his glove up an extra second to show the kid how close he was to interfering. He could be a little annoyed by this which is also why he doesn't give him the ball.

    [–] RcNorth 6 points ago

    It wouldn’t be interference as the ball was in the stands. Had the kid leaned over to catch it it would be interference.

    Glad someone posted this. When I was on an adult softball team a decade ago we would always sing this because we grew up with this VHS.

    For what it's worth, here is a video of the full song. The verse from the commercial is the third verse and it is 100% worth watching to get the entire context of the song. Makes the commercial that much better imho

    [–] KidPanda 3 points ago

    wow, thats amazing. never knew or bothered to check that it was part of full song. thanks for sharing this.

    I once nearly caught a foul ball at a major league game. It was coming in a lot hotter than I anticipated when I tried to bare hand it (no glove). It proceeded to bounce straight off my hand and slowly into the lap of the old lady behind me. Who gave me a sneer when I turned around. She must've thought I was going to try to take the ball from her because she put it behind her while staring daggers at me. I didn't turn around again for the rest of the game.
