My folks have tickets behind the Orioles' dugout at Camden Yards, and thus we have ample opportunity to snag a ball at the game.
My cousin's son has picked up five balls over the years, and my son's friend got one at a game three years ago.
Thursday, a few innings after my brother just missed a lofted pop foul, our neighbor - seated next to him - got his baseball. The Oriole threw the ball into the stands after finishing an inning, and it bounced off the railing and some seats before landing in his lap.
No fuss, no muss, just a baseball to take home.
