Jr. League Baseball greatest catch
I saw someone flagged this as "Off Topic." But I don't know that it is too far off topic. That young fella that made that kind of catch could in a few years very well be a 1st round draft pick for a MLB Team.
As for my fav team, the Giants, well, they are nearly 40 games out of 1st place, in last place, and they continue to sink. Stink & sink.
But it was good while it lasted. Folk grew tired of their winning the World Series 3 times in 5 years. Came close to doing it again last year, but they caught some kind of disease in the 9th inning of that 4th game of the Division Series vs the Cubs. If they had held on to win that one, they had All Star pitcher Johnny Cueto going in the 5th and final game and likely would have eliminated the Cubs, making them wait another 100 years. And the Giants had proven, every time, if they could get into the Championship Series, they went all the way. But 4 WS Titles in 7 years was just too much to hope for.
Ever since then, it's been anathema. AT&T Park had sold out for something like 350 games in a row (A MLB record), but that ended earlier this season. I wonder how hard it will be for them to sell seasons tickets next winter. It's the end of an era. In this world, all good things must come to an end.
