Yesterday I posted a video to my Twitter account from a Dodgers game in 2012. It was an A.J. Ellis walkoff homer against the Astros. I had my phone out with the hopes of recording a Dodgers win. Instead, I nearly missed catching the game-winning home run.
Found this old video while going through my Facebook. I think this is an A.J. Ellis walkoff home run from years back.— Blake Harris (@BlakeHarrisTBLA) May 28, 2020
Had I not been recording, I might've been able to make a play on the ball.
What's the closest you've ever come to catching a home run during a game? pic.twitter.com/ZYLJ7ppdCF
With me coming within a few seats of catching this home run, I thought this would be a fun question to ask. What’s the closest you’ve ever come to catching a home run or a foul ball at a baseball game? I’ve caught my fair share of homers in batting practice, but I’ve never gotten a ball during a game.
So, if you have any great stories of coming close to catching one, or of you actually catching one, share them in the comments!

- Max Scherzer voiced his frustration with the latest negotiations in regards to the proposed pay cuts
- Major League Baseball’s rosters may be frozen due to the novel coronavirus delaying the season, but that isn’t stopping organizations from trimming their ranks on the minor-league side. Beginning this week and extending through next week, teams are collectively expected to release hundreds of minor leaguers, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, with most organizations cutting somewhere between 30 and 50 players.
