Couldn't agree with you more. When I was a kid thats all I wanted. Wore my glove the entire game.
I got a homerun ball last season not by shoving anyone out of the way or tackiling anyone like some of the people around me but I came out of the pile with the ball. The ball was headed right at my seat. I heard a kid a few rows back say something like "We might get another one right?"
Then I realized all I was gonna do when I got home was throw the ball in the closet and forget about it so I gave it to the kid. His dad bought me a beer.
