Let's see, you played ball for 4 yrs in high school, played at the college level, and you're a midget.
Perfect qualifications for being a ballboy and spreading rumors about offseason acquisitions.

Pretty Simple I guess A bunch of freinds and i rented one of those charter busses to go to Yankme stadium to watch a game. We had plenty of food and way to much drink. On the trip down about three hours of a ride. Someone came up with the idea that noone had the Guts to go on feild I said I did but didnt have the money to get bailed out. Thankfully this was pre 9-11 the penalties are much worse now. So any way there was a collection plate passed there was enough for bail and another $500 so the rest is history. We got to the game during the 7th inning stretch i hopped over the wall ran across the infield trie to jump into the stands on the other side but security grabbed my legs and pulled me back down. Not much happened they made me leave no arrest. Told me not to come back and let me go to the Bus. I did go back and have had no issues. I do get thinking about jumping over any time I go to any game. I have so far resisted Though. Thanks for asking
