I was at the Phillies game tonight to interview a couple guys who are seeing 30 ballparks in 30 days (full post coming tomorrow). When the interview was over around the 7th inning, I decided to grab one of the many empty seats left from folks who had departed early. You never leave a baseball game early.
I have been to hundreds of them. I've seen a no-hitter, a cycle, a triple play, a World Series, and an All-Star game. Two things I've never seen? An inside the park home run and a bench clearning brawl. Back when I was young, I left a game early with my father and immediately after Juan Bell hit an inside the park home run, which was followed by a bench clearing brawl.
I no longer leave games early.
Good thing, because tonight, the Phils did it to Broxton again.

Seizure warning at the :15 mark.
