Years ago when my daughter was 4 (now 30) I brought her to a Red Sox game. I know the game can be a little boring for a 4 year old so I told her is she ever wants to leave just say the word and we will go. In the fourth inning I got the word. After heading out we were walking down Lansdowne Street. I was still following the game because the Red Sox were up. As we were turning the corner by the Cask and Flagon heading towards Kenmore Square, I heard a roar from the crowd. So I looked up at the net above the Green Monster hoping to see a ball land softly there. As it turned out a ball came over the roof right towards us. It bounced in the street and after one hop on the hood of a parked car I fielded it cleanly. I was recording it on my VCR and I later learned it was a Tom Brunanski towering foul ball over the left field roof that I was fortunate enough to grab.

Only baseball could give you such a great memory and a souvenir.
