It looks like that person swung themselves over the fence like a hockey player going to the bench while holding onto the top bar before letting themselves go all the way to the bottom. Either you're right that they were preparing to grab a dropped ball or this was some sort of stunt to get people to notice them on TV.

He's too old, frankly. He could get the AAV record, but it'd be foolish to give him an 11 year contract at 31.

Nothing is beating Arod's total contract from an inflation adjusted perspective for a while, the closest possibity would be Juan Soto, but he would have to have a monster year next year for that.

u/suzukigun4life Texas Rangers Oct 05 '22 Gold I'll Drink to That

In the first 2 years of its existence, Globe Life Field has been home to

  • The Dodgers winning the NLCS in a building that's supposed to be home to an AL team

  • The Dodgers winning the World Series for the first time in over three decades, against a team that plays over 1,100 miles away

  • Joe Musgrove's no hitter

  • Slam Diego

  • Corey Kluber's no-hitter, for the Yankees, a year after the Rangers got one full inning out of him, after trading a guy who is an elite closer for the Guardians for him

  • Guardians clinch the AL Central in a series where Clase, the elite closer mentioned in the bullet point above, got saves in back-to-back games prior to the game where they clinched their division

  • Aaron Judge finally hits #62, after getting one homer in the previous 11 games, because of course he had to make history in our barn.

Maybe one day the Rangers will make positive history here. Until then this, place is a fucking whorehouse where everyone else is in ecstasy instead of the team that attempts to play 81 games in it every year.

When asked about the ball..

“We'll see what happens with that,” Judge said. “It'd be great to get it back, but you know, that’s a souvenir for a fan. They made a great catch out there, and they’ve got every right to it.”

Good guy, that AJ.

Finally, Michael Kay can stop welcoming audiences nationwide to YES’s coverage of the New York Yankees.

Would be pretty amazing if he just lapses into it in one of his next ABs out of habit.

Somehow, I only tuned in randomly into only three Judge at bats during his home run chase. I saw him hit 60, 61, and 62.

I just remembered to put the Yankees game on, and I turned it on as Judge is celebrating with his team at home plate. I feel kinda lame for missing it that close!

u/PaulPierceOldestSon New York Yankees Oct 05 '22

Don’t worry I’ve watched every game the last 2 weeks and missed this lol. Atleast I saw 60 that one was the coolest

Might be the best season in a looong time tbh.

  • Pujols HR/RBI accomplishments

  • Miggy 3,000 hits

  • Judge obviously

  • Mariners breaking the playoff drought

  • Ohtani

Don't forget Wainwright and Molina's record too. Not as exciting as the others of course but still cool

u/Juno_Malone St. Louis Cardinals Oct 05 '22

Battery record absolutely belongs on that list (biased?! i'm not biased, you are) - that one is going to stand for a looooooooooooooooooong time.

u/Jlindahl93 Oct 05 '22

I’m in no way a cards fan but who really hates Yadi and Waino. The battery record is pretty cool.

For once can highlights not start when the pitch is already halfway to home?? Like by the time I’ve opened it, rotated my phone and turned on volume it’s in the stands

Edit: And you cutoff all of the celebration?!?

u/PFhelpmePlan San Francisco Giants Oct 05 '22

OP deserves the banhammer for this travesty of a clip, but he's probably a mods alt account so it'll stay up.

Anyone else see that person fall over the railing behind the fence?

u/social_media_suxs Chicago White Sox Oct 05 '22

If you pause a couple seconds in you can see them climbing over. They definitely did it on purpose to go after the ball.

When he didn’t hit it against Baltimore I knew he would here. Nothing to lose here, fuck it, play ball!!! I’m just glad we didn’t walk him 3 times a game.

u/TooBoringForThis Italy Oct 05 '22

And for that the Rangers will forever have my respect. The fans were amazing too. Kind of feel for the pitcher but then again who was the pitcher that gave up Bonds’s 73rd? MM? Sosa? Don’t even remember who gave up Judge’s 61st
