Hey typical.... I'd be happy to buy you a ticket to a baseball game if you promise to try and catch a foul ball.

I've caught a few in my day, can't say I ever took the chance on falling twenty feet for one. Ask that little kid if he would rather have the ball or his dad.

I'm not shocked at all. I read and hear hurtful remarks all the time. Personally I don't think he was a moron he just took to much of a chance by leaning over the rail. Unfortuately it cost him his life and his son will always have to live with the memory of that day. I think it's sad.

I think it's sad also, actually. All for a baseball, just makes me wonder wtf he was thinking.

Everybody has this defense of baseball. Maybe they guy was such a loser he wanted to commit suicide and he faked going after a baseball just so his little kid can get rich from the resulting lawsuit

Did anyone notice that he had a chance to stop himself from going head-first, but opted to hold onto the ball ?

Reminds me of when I was young working with a crew cleaning up trees, the homeowner was watching us and he picked up an old toy belonging to his dog and pitched it into the wood chipper. Yep, the dog jumped right in after it, I felt sorry for the dog, he didn't know any better. I have to go along with the moron aspect of this case. You can only do so much to protect stupid people.

I'm pretty sure that if Hamilton tossed you a ball you would be quite happy.

Not really. Nothing about pro sports impresses me. Local and college athletes tend to have a lot more heart and drive.
