Photo: The One Man On The Planet Who Should Bring A Glove To A Baseball Game

Pow! Right in the kisser!

Many interesting things occurred at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington last night during the Twins-Rangers game, not the least of which was the Rangers pitching staff taking a combined no-hitter into the ninth inning until Joe Mauer broke it up with a single off Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz. The Rangers went on to beat the Twins 4-0, but Texas starter Rich Harden was no-hitting the Twinkies with two outs in the 7th inning when manager Ron Washington was forced to pull him after he struggled with the pitch count, throwing 111 pitches while walking five batters.

But if you were to ask me, the quintessential brilliant performance at the ballpark last night was the effort put forth by Fort Worth Star-Telegram photographer Brandon Wade, who brilliantly captured this glaring example of an epic fail by one clumsy fan in attendance. DOINK!

In my opinion, there is nothing more shameful than witnessing a grown man walk into a baseball game sporting a glove. Men like that should be escorted out of the stadium and be forced into some kind of “You Can Act Like A Man!’ fantasy camp.

But in this instance, I have to say that perhaps this hand-eye coordination-challenged young man should have been allowed to take the Walk of Shame to his seat carrying his mitt. Who is this guy’s father, Mr. No-Depth Perception?

And rounding out the hilarity of the photo is how it captures the individual to Baseball To The Face Guy’s right, freezing in time and documenting his sissified response to the events occurring right in front of him. EEK!

Truly a win on all accounts, not to mention a testament to the greatness which can be achieved through the medium of photojournalism. Well done, Brandon Wade. If this isn’t Pulitzer Prize-worthy, there’s something wrong with the system.

    Ugh…the bigger story here is what is the guy in the blue shirt behind him doing. Is he having an orgasm?

    Thanks for the compliment on my photo. Not many people realize how difficult capturing moments like this can be. I wouldn’t consider it pulitzer material, but I appreciate the thought!

    Did the guy in front of him with HIS HAND IN HIS FACE have anything to do with his not being able to see the ball? Brandon; good shot. WeedAgainstSpeed cheap shot to the fan!

    I gotta go defend Ball-in-the-Face guy here. We don’t know the circumstances other than this is a “Best of the Year” photo that we will se again. Kudos to Wade. But maybe the guy was distracted or the foul was a rocket to the face or any number of things. If it is a high blooper, either duck or use your hat. A line drive? Just get the hell out fo the way or use something other than your face to knock it down.

    I love seeing women made to take so much pleasure that it hurts.
