Out-snagging Your Age
I know there has been much ballhawking news going on here, but trust there was at Coca Cola Field. Combined, Austin, Quinn, and I have snagged 385 baseballs at International League games. But, that’s not what I want to talk about right now. I want to talk about out-snagging your age. Out-snagging your age is exactly what it sounds like. You snag more balls in one game than how old you are. For example, last year I was 12 and I snagged 18 balls at the Bisons game. On September 14, 2011, Zack Hample out-snagged his age on his 34th birthday by snagging 36 baseballs at Great American Ballpark. Here is the article about it: http://zackhample.mlblogs.com/2011/09/21/91411-at-great-american-ball-park/. Quinn is currentlly 12 and snagged 17 a couple weeks ago. Austin is also 12 and he got 21 this year. Out snagging your age is definetly a great accomplishment. leave a comment if you’ve ever done it.
