One of the great highlights of recent times came not from a player but a fan.
The other day at Wrigley Field, Miguel Tejada of the Giants belted a home run to left field, in the first game of a doubleheader.
A fan in the bleachers made a terrific grab...then showed off his rocket arm by, in Wrigley tradition, throwing the ball back on the field. However, he didn't just fling it harmlessly to the outfield grass. Oh no. He unleashed a bullet, nearly hitting Tejada as he trotted from second base to third. The ball rolled all the way to the on deck circle in front of the Giants first base dugout. Aubrey Huff tapped the ball back with his bat and Cody Ross picked it up and flipped it to Tejada who was heading into the dugout. Tejada put the ball in his back pocket. Overall, very funny and maybe the first time a guy hit a home run and got the ball back after he crossed home plate and before he reached the dugout.
As for the Cubs, they need to find that fan and sign him. What could it hurt? Although after that throw he probably needs Tommy John surgery.
