If there was any disputing about which baseball team has the most heroic ballgirls, the Dodgers put that argument to rest on Sunday.
Last season, a Dodgers ballgirl stopped a phone-using fan from taking a 108.7 mph liner to the head. That was amazing. On Sunday, we saw another act of heroism from a different ballgirl down the left-field line at Dodger Stadium.
After misplaying a foul ball from that same Javier Baez at-bat, this ballgirl showed off some outstanding defense when it really mattered. Unlike the phone-using fan, the man standing in the first row was paying attention, but without the ballgirl’s help, that could have turned into a painful foul ball.
Seriously, what a catch. She got a well-deserved ovation after that grab.
Fans are in safe hands down the lines at Dodger Stadium.
