Impressive wiffle ball catch stops home run, ends game

August 18, 2013 | By Abraham | 7 comments

The catch in this clip is cool, but I’d have to say it’s overshadowed by how goofy an adult wiffle ball field looks. It’s almost cute…

    We only have his word for whether he kept it in his hand. I think the whiffle ball commission ought to be involved.

    The Broadmoor Resort ad on this website makes me want to throat punch the guy who runs it. Oh, and I’ll never visit that place. Anyone with that kind of ad should have their place burned to the ground.

    OK, that might be a bit extreme. I just needed to vent.

      If it was an audio ad, I’m sorry… Those aren’t ever supposed to happen, but sometimes they slip through. Thanks for letting me know.

      @Ken Unless the rules of wiffleball are different than that of baseball, that is an out. In baseball, as long as both of the fielder’s feet are in play when he makes the catch, and he maintains control of the ball, it is a legal catch. If the fielder’s momentum carries him out of play, the ball is dead, time is called and any runners are entitled to one base. See rule 6.05(a). http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/downloads/y2013/official_baseball_rules.pdf

    Note the umpire motioning homerun and some guy in the red arguing with him; he had to catch it and stay in the field for it to be an out. Its different than a foulball.
