This kid who fell over the outfield wall before Wednesday's Mets-Phillies game at Citizens Bank Ballpark is said to be A-OK, but here's the part where I do my impression of a newsreader and say (in a deep , important voice): "Warning: What we're about to show you may be disturbing to some viewers."
You know, when I was a kid attending batting practice in the bleachers of the old Comiskey Park, I'd use to wonder what the heck would happen if I fell over the wall while trying to catch a home run ball.
Wrigley Field, after all, had a basket to catch you; The Baseball Palace of the World did not. Would you survive? Would you die? Would the players come over to help you?
(Hey, I was a pretty contemplative kid with a lot of time on my hands to think.)
Well, thanks to this little guy now I finally know. It would hurt. You would cry. Your shoes would fall off. And Mike Pelfrey would take a break from shagging flies to see if you were OK.
