Boston Red Sox Right Fielder Trot Nixon threw a ball into the Right Field Grand Stands after making a catch for the 2nd out.

Her name ain't Bartman and this ain't the playoffs. It's spring training. Sometimes the manager's get together and quit a game that's tied. The other day a pitcher got fired during the game. And no one is going to yell at a Hooter's girl jogging around in hot pants, especially not pro baseball players.

Wonder if it was ruled a ground rule double since the fair ball went into the stands?

It was a ground rule double because the ball went into her hands.

They let Pujols have a designated runner. Not a pinch runner. He got to bat again when it was his turn.

A ball striking or handled by a ball attendant or umpire is a live ball. I suppose since it “went off” the ball attendant into the stands it’s a ground rule double.

Fenway used to use kids from the high school were Dan Duquette’s son (and my daughter) attended. One kid fielded a ground ball that was ruled fair. The camera caught him sitting there with the most sheepish grin you ever saw. After the end of that half inning, he was relieved and sent home, never to appear on the field again.

Like most teams the Red Sox use female ball attendants these days, and they seem quite capable.

Here in Pittsburgh they started recruiting girls from local college softball teams to serve as ball girls. And often a lot of them make better plays in the field than the Pirates do.

The left-field ball girl at Citizens Bank Park did exactly the same thing last year during a regular season Phillies game.

It is a male strength to make a goober of himself. One of the things we do well. ;)

I was watching a HS Baseball game last night (JV) and 3 umps showed up. I kind of figured 2 would do the game and the other was kind of observing (probably grading?)

Anyhow runners on 1st & 2nd, 1 out the batter hits a pop fly - NOT quite a towering pop up but the ball had some loft and the 2nd baseman cleanly caught the ball.

I turned to the ‘extra’ umpire (by now I did notice he did have an area ‘Umpires ball cap on’) and ALL I said to him was:
“Doesn’t the infield fly rule come in effect anymore”?
It is a question I have been wondering about because the local HS leagues sooner NOT call it most of the time.

So, my question was directed to the ‘Trainer?’ and he looked at me like I had lit into one of the Umps and said “You aren’t supposed to vocally question decisions by the umpires”.
Well I am an old ball player and if I had ‘played’ with his family it would have been his father at the least and probably grandfather.
I said “Lets get something straight. I AM NOT questioning the call. I am NOT getting on an Umpire. I know the rules (no matter how stupid) about ‘picking on’ an Umpire. ALL I want to know ‘FROM THE SUPPOSED SENIOR UMP’ DO they not call Infield Fly Rule in HS anymore’.
That clown actually walked away from me.
Well if this is the attitude of someone that is ‘training’ or evaluating umps, one can see the attitude they may possess.

Of course, on school property, I must remain dignified at ALL times, not only because I am a guest BUT I feel my registered ‘friend’ is safer in my possession than in my vehicle, I can not afford any ‘run ins’....

Another case of make enough rules and we can all become felons after a fashion.

I remember the game, the runner was not on third and did not score in that inning. By rule, when a fielder throws a ball into the stands, all the base runners are awarded ONE base. Since the runner did not score, the official scorer ruled that the runner advanced on a “fielder’s choice”, so Nixon was not charged with an error. If the base runner had subsequently scored as a result of Nixon’s “choice”, I am sure the official scorer would have ruled it an error, since otherwise the pitch would have unfairly been charged with an earned run.

On thing that surprises me is that announcers do not indicate whether or not the infield fly rule has been invoked, any more. If the camera shows the second base umpire you can usually watch him. BTW, major league umpires are pretty near flawless making these calls, I am sure they recognize the situation before it arises.

I hadn't notice, but now that you mention it, her heels are way too low, her cleavage too high and her shorts are too long. Thanks for reminding me of why we're here. Also, we can't we get a shot from the stern?
