Secret to Catching a Foul Ball

by Greg in


I realize all attention is now on the playoffs.  The table is set: Bourne and Falmouth in the West and Y-D and Chatham in the East.  First pitches are Friday at 3 p.m. Nevertheless, I felt the Falmouth Enterprise's sweet story about how to catch a foul ball at a Cape Cod Baseball League merited mention here.  Christopher Kazarian wrote a very enjoyable feature on the kids who attend games and work very hard to find their way to a foul ball.  The story is complete with great photography and like any well-written feature -- a memorable closing.

The story captures much of what we love about Cape baseball outside the lines -- the kids and the pursuit of a ball.
