This is going to sound really random, but I'm bored and this caused me to think of it.
Any player can lose the ball in the lights, right? And when they do, they tend to cover their heads and wait for the ball to land. Every fan is going to laugh at that, including me. But if we were in that situation we would do the same thing. If there was a baseball falling out of the sky and we had no idea where it was going to land, we would also cover our head and wait for it to land. There's nothing wrong with that and we would defend ourselves if we were the ones to look like that.
Now, tripping over your own 2 feet and missing a fly ball is another story. I have no problem laughing at that.
Let's Go Mets!
