Another common/silly mistake

I was just watching the Braves-Phillies game on TBS. It was raining. The crowd thinned out in the last few innings. The cameras were showing the fans running through the empty rows of seats for foul balls–except no one was actually running UNTIL the balls landed.
Don’t make this common mistake.

Just like a major league fielder, you need to get a good jump on the ball. Just make sure you do the following three things:

1. Sit in a row directly behind or in front of the main aisle so you can move left and right.
2. Sit at the end of the row so you can move up and down the stairs.
3. Glance at the staircase and aisle before each pitch to make sure there’s no one in your way…then, if a ball is hit in your direction, you can jump up and start running toward it with nothing to fear.

I’m always aware of my surroundings. Look at this pic…

Hey, buddy, ever heard of that thing called the concourse?

Nice pic. Long live the lodge.

ouch man, thats my dad in the pic…

If that were your dad, he’d have 20 Mets towels/bags/tee-shirts stuffed in his pockets after filling out bogus forms for mortgages and credit cards.

lol wrong Stadlen there Zack.

I’m confused.

Yea. That’s what I told my cousin you would be after he posted that. I dunno. Joke gone bad due to recognition of name in email address?

Yeah, I suppose you guys should’ve created a phony address just to make the joke.

haha, I had absolutely nothing to do with that. Just trying to clarify.

Riiiiiiight.

There are no real concourses at Shea though. It’s harder to hear in there i think.

When Citifield opens on the other hand, but I bet you’re already drooling about the seating/batting practice homerun situation there.
