Tell me a Cubs fan didn't write this.:o:
Spectators are now generally allowed, and even encouraged, to keep baseballs that are hit or tossed to them. (Fans are allowed—especially at Wrigley Field (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrigley_Field)—to throw visitors' home run (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_run) balls back onto the field. In fact, a home run ball is the only object a fan may throw on the field without penalty.)

TECHNICALLY that's true...security at Wrigley does not kick out fans for throwing OPPOSING teams homerun balls back on the field...I HAVE in fact seen them kick out a Cardinal fan who threw a Cub homerun ball back out on the field.

What about the fans who weren't paying attention and accidentally throw their own teams' balls back?

Well...when I worked there (I worked at Comiskey too) if we threw those people out the park would be empty...

As I understand it, there are cities where fans can be ejected for throwing any home run ball back on the field. Really, it should be a felony, punishable by fine and imprisonment.

Wikipedia isn't a reliable source, of course. People with a better grasp of reality can, and should, go in and correct this entry.

I heard a Cubs fan got thrown out of Coors Field for throwing a Rockies home run back onto the field.

Found it

Personally, I don't see how the entire paragraph about fans keeping the balls is relevent.

If that is a policy (written or not) with Wrigley security, what does that mean for the people who keep the home run ball and throw a ball they brought into the park onto the field?

Oh, wait, that never happens.

I heard this also, it was not the real ball though. He made sure to get some copycat balls because he knew he was sitting in the bleachers and could catch a bomb. He did not want to throw the real ball back, but at the same time he could not disappoint "Cubbies Nation" by not throwing it back.

That is the most ridiculous thing of all - if you don't want to throw the REAL home run ball back at Wrigley, someone will give you a fake ball to throw back.

That speaks volumes about the mindset of that team and its fans.
