May I add to this that if you are fortunate and/or wealthy enough to be sitting in the field box seats, and you are over the age of 10, and you beg the ballboy for a ball, you are pathetic and should have your seats given to someone who would enjoy the unbelievable treat of being so close to the action without also demanding a gift?

Blank both of you. I'm 50 years old, and have had the fun of attending perhaps 25 or 30 games at Fenway. I've never held a major league game ball in my hand.

Pardon me if I would ever have the chance to again sit in the front row, now a privilege reserved to the elite, and happened to have a ball hit my way, if I should make a mistake in judgement or take a minute to hold and fondle and reflect on such a treasure before handing it off to a 'deserving' child of privilege -- or not.


Raysfanboy Many many thanks for your kind words and good whsies. Derrick's first season was ok. A huge transition for him. But I was watching on the internet when he hit a 400 foot home run, his first and only shot of the year. Definitely looking forward to seeing what he does next year.Funny about putting pressure on your nephew at 3. Once, when Derrick was 3, I threw him a wiffle ball from about 20 feet away and he drilled it back to me so hard I could barely get out of the way and the ball smacked me on the forehead, where I had a welt for a day.Cheers,Michael
