Foul Ball Ignites Sparks on Face Mask of Detroit Catcher Alex Avila [VIDEO]

Foul tips are one of the perils of playing the catcher position in baseball, but one doesn’t usually associate fire hazard with that risk.

Foul Ball Hits Woman in the Face [VIDEO]

While foul balls hit into the stands provide fans with the chance to make some pretty epic catches, those suckers are traveling at high enough speeds to cause an injury.

During last night’s game against the Orioles, Yankees third baseman Eric Chavez almost catches a foul ball that was headed for the crowd. When he can’t make the grab, the ball ends up hitting a woman in the front row smack in the unprotected face.

Relive Some of Derek Jeter’s Most Amazing Hits [VIDEOS]

Mr. 3000. Sure, it’s a bad movie starring the late Bernie Mac, but it’s also a new moniker for Derek Jeter, who became the 28th player in Major League history to notch 3,000 hits, courtesy of a home run Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jeter, whose first career hit – a single -- came off of Seattle’s Tim Belcher on May 30, 1995, also has the distinction of being the first New York Yankee to reach the milestone.

Soldier Surprises Son With First Pitch [VIDEO]

I found this video over the weekend and had to share.  July 4th is a week away and this story fits right in with that.  Check out this CNN video of a soldier who surprises his son at his little league game by throwing out the first pitch.  The part that put a lump in my throat was when the dad says "he learned how to catch while I was gone."  I can't even imagine being gone serving my country for so long that I miss out on playing catch with my son.  Thanks to all the men and women who make that very sacrifice so that we can keep the freedoms that we have.  I salute you!  Video after the jump.
