    Did you see that big guy trample the kid for the ball?

    That was such an outrage.

    Sports are for the young, and there is simply no excuse for that kind of behavior. Word has it that the guy didn't even apologize.

    That is just no way for Kurt to treat Eli.

    The kid didn't even know the ball was there. I don't blame the guy for getting the ball.

    You think Reggie Sanders will give him a bat and autographed ball to make up for it?

    Re: Did you see that big guy trample the kid for the ball?

    Just seen it on the news quiz on BBC2, Some big thug at a Cardinals/Rangers baseball game pushed a kid out the way to get to a "fly ball" ( i believe is the correct term). Then sat it out as the rest of the crowd chanted "give him the ball"

    He certainly got his moment of fame/infamy on TV. Bet the kid ends up with a signed ball instead,would be a good PR op for the team. Or am I getting cynical in my old age

    Well, from what I saw, it appeared as if he were reaching for the incoming ball and tripped over the seats in pursuit of it, subsequently kicking a kid somewhat lightly and pinning him to the seat in front of him as the guy scrambled for the ball on the ground.

    I was watching the game, the kid wasn't paying attention. The ball whizzed past him. People should be upset with Mom's for not taking care of the kid.

    I'm very serious. The kid was daydreaming and they were seated right behind the Cardinals dugout. I don't know how many baseball games you've gone to, but balls go whizzing through that area quite often. If you want to take a kid to the game and watch him daydream, don't sit so close.

    The kid's name is Nick O'Brien. He's 4 years old. Sitting ten rows from the field. Not smart.

    Not to say the guy isn't an idiot, he is. However, Mom should have been watching the kid closer DURING PLAY.

    Plus, the kid got a bat and ball from Reggie Sanders. He was on Good Morning America. He got a ball signed by Nolan Ryan. GMA gave him Mets tickets.

    The kid did ok......

    Rumor has it other fans in attendance paid him a visit, but I couldn't confirm that.

    Sounds like he was better off with this incident happening anyway. :redface:

    I agree with tx, you need to pay attention at those games. I have seen many people get hit just because they weren't paying attention. If you have a child with you and are sitting close then you damn well better be watching out for the kid.
