Dusty's bound and determined to get his kid hurt wandering around on the field...

This isn't cute, and this isn't funny. It shouldn't be the players' responsibility to watch out for a toddler on the field of play.

Sorry, but this is just perfect for a team like the Cubs. They thrive on that "Aww, how cute" factor.

Baseball implemented an age requirement of 14 for bat boys, often referred to as the "Darren Baker rule," after the boy was nearly run over at home plate when he wandered into the action during Game 5 of the World Series.

"That's not fair," Darren says of the mandate.

"How come?" asks his dad.

"Mommy said so."

You gotta love that maternal instinct. It's easy to see how the kid almost got mauled in the first place.

Taking a job with the Cubbies doesn't make him brilliant anyway.

God, I'm trying so hard not to laugh out loud here, I'm at school, in the comp lab. And I got a guy next to me wearing a Flubs hat. Heh heh heh...

I LOVED this part though:

"What team are you on now?" Baker asks.

"Cubs," says Darren.

"What town is that in?"

"Chicago."

What's Darren think of the move?

*cries* "Daddy will never win a championship now!"

Smart kid.
