Talkative Fan at Orioles-Rays Game Escapes Foul Boul Death by Mere Inches

Sitting in amazing seats at a baseball game is a privilege that comes with a few responsibilities. First, you must not wave at the television cameras while asking your friends at home if they can see you now. You also must pay attention while the game is going on so you don’t wind up dead.

A well-dressed gentleman at last night’s Baltimore Orioles-Tampa Bay Rays game almost discovered this the hard way.

Even more alarming is the fact that seat is close to wear Dick Vitale normally sits when he attends games. We could have lost a national treasure –although Vitale’s usually blowing enough hot air to diver the ball away from his face no matter the speed.
