ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

August 07, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

Catcher Chris Widger is 1-for-40 lifetime against the Yankees. The one hit was a home run off Randy Johnson.

Here's something you don't see every day: A male fan sitting in front of the press box caught a foul ball from Melky Cabrera and, without hesitating, fired it over the netting and onto the field. He then held up his white Orioles hat and received an ovation.

A few pitches later, ushers made him leave the ballpark.

If I'm the Orioles, I sign him as the backup catcher. He showed off a nice arm. And I'm sure he could go 1-for-40 against the Yankees, though I doubt he'd homer off Randy Johnson.
