Stop throwing back homerun balls!

from Huisj and Harwar of the WSI message board community

if sox fans start throwing back home run balls on a regular basis, I will be pissed. That's a stupid cub thing to do. If you go to a baseball game and catch a ball, consider yourself lucky that you got it (you can still be disappointed that someone hit a homerun against the sox, but at least you got a ball out of the deal).

On Saturday, when Bautista hit his homer, the people around the guy who got it were yelling to throw it back. It made me cringe to hear that. Luckily, he had a brain and didn't do it.

This has bothered me for years, but I did nothing because I thought it would pass by now.  The people who catch a homerun ball at Wrigley are under tremendous pressure to throw it back, even to the point of physical intimidation.  I say we do the same thing at Comiskey, in reverse.  Anyone seen throwing homerun balls back onto the field should be hounded by Sox fans to the point where they can't stay in the park.  I am just waiting for the chance to catch someone near me doing that.  I'm going to let them have it.
