This runner’s safe by a country mile

If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant’s life, she will choose to save the infant’s life without even considering if there is a man on base. — Dave Barry

Saturday’s weekend challenge on partner Susan and my alternate site was the word  FOCUS.

Many times in the game of professional baseball the  salaried athletes  are guilty of making a judgement error now and again.

Some players over run the base or in the rare moment fail to tag the bag when a pop up flyball  is caught. Pitchers throwing a wild pitch allow bases to be stolen and errors charged to the guilty party.

In the situation above there is no doubt that the runner is safe and that both he and the baseman have no idea where the ball is heading. 

This was a saved by the ball opportunity.
