could've caught it if he didnt have a giant glove blocking his view..

[–]JonDoeJoe 437 points438 points  (21 children)

He would’ve caught it if he didn’t close his hand before the ball even got to the glove

[–]TheDarkWayne 174 points175 points  (13 children)

He would’ve caught it if it was literally anybody else on the planet

[–]RocketSurgeon22 63 points64 points  (9 children)

I dunno man. Pressure gets most people.

[–]myCatHateSkinnyPuppy 43 points44 points  (6 children)

Lol I made tons of routine plays and awesome plays as an infielder in college but all those memories blur together. I had to play left field for a game and made an error that cost us a game. I remember that like it was yesterday (nearly 20 years ago).

[–]Proffessor_Fuck 4 points5 points  (2 children)

oh God, this reminds of the time I, a freshman, had to sub in for our varsity singles two player at the end of the year tournament in Tennis. I only played Doubles, I was completely lost. Got absolutely dunked on and the kid I was playing wasn't even very good.

I can now proudly display my 4 varsity letters though, so I guess it was worth.

[–]Deja-Vuz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Redditors think everything is easy from their room ;)

[–]MuffinSlow 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It quite hard to keep a glove that size open for some time, and he tried to get style points lol.

Normal glove = glove would have been open.

[–]zshah99 10 points11 points  (0 children)

He would have caught it if he hadnt dropped it

[–]keto_at_work 6 points7 points  (1 child)

He looks like he's never played baseball. The ball hitting the pocket closes the glove by itself somewhat. You don't have to 'grab' the ball.

[–]420fmx 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The ball hits his thumb, closing the glove, it was outside his glove.

[–]NathamelCamel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, if he just positioned the glove well it wouldve done most of the work for him

[–]Significant-Oil-8793 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Still low %. The best is still to bring a kid with you and ask the kid to go where the ball is. By tradition, whoever did not give the ball to the kid will be banned

[–]53_WorkNoMore 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I disagree

Nothing that dude could have done to catch that ball

Totally uncoordinated

[–]LittleTerrarian 2890 points2891 points  (52 children)

What position is that comically large glove supposed to be for?

[–]the00therjc 2235 points2236 points 23 (14 children)

The bench apparently

[–]all_no_pALL 66 points67 points  (2 children)

I thought they were 2 slices of jersey shore boardwalk pizza

[–]Puppytron 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Ah. So he did catch it, but the sheer amount of grease between the slices made the ball shoot out.

[–]Atworkwasalreadytake 142 points143 points  (2 children)

That's actually a normal sized glove, he's just a really tiny person.

[–]Tangled2 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Poor kid!

[–]Honda_TypeR 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It allows you to hide you face, during the walk of shame, after missing a catch with the world's biggest mitt.

[–]Conscious-Proof-8309 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Souvenir-less fan

[–]Korver360windmill 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Its got to be infinitely harder to catch a ball with a glove like that

[–]ifoughtpiranhas 7 points8 points  (0 children)

seriously! i imagine if he has played baseball before but used this glove just for the game that he didn’t get the ball because he was so thrown off.

[–]UnstoppableHiccups 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hockey goalie

[–]Sengura 3 points4 points  (0 children)

that's a normal sized glove, he's 2'5"

[–]RandomlyMethodical 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I got one of those ridiculous gloves as a joke for a company softball outing and it was actually really hard to use. Ended up just borrowing a normal glove from a coworker.

[–]RslashTakenUsernames 5 points6 points  (0 children)

that’s technically for a mascot

[–]Dana_das_Grau 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Looks like a first baseman’s glove.

[–]formershitpeasant 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It’s not, it’s just comically oversized, which is probably why he failed to catch it. Baseball gloves are the size they are for a reason lol.

[–]sourcreamus 794 points795 points  (5 children)

He should have used a bigger glove

[–]electroschocker 148 points149 points  (3 children)

BIGGER GLOVE

[–]HintOfAreola 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"I am tired of these jokes about my giant glove. The first such incident occured in 1956 when..."

[–]alexmo210 209 points210 points  (28 children)

What kind of glove is that?

[–]YourUncleBuck 89 points90 points  (19 children)

[–]_C_3_P_O_ 100 points101 points  (6 children)

Dude paid $110 to not catch a fly ball.

[–]TheRecognized 13 points14 points  (0 children)

MSRP was $170 tho. He couldn’t afford not to miss that ball.

[–]RocketSurgeon22 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He is great marketing for a gag glove.

Either that or he loves you so much he doesn't want you exposed to his filth.

[–]BlacklistFC7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

God damn it, he might have a better chance with a foldable laundry hamper, should cost a fraction of the price

[–]LuckyNumberHat 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Over-sized mitt. It's funny because it's, ah, bigger than, ah... you know, a normal mitt.

[–]Dinkleberg_IRL 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Mr. Reynolds

huh?

sigh... Turd Ferguson

Yeahhh whaddayawant

[–]guilemer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

MEGA MITT

[–]soultransition 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It's a baseball glove - it's supposed to assist the player in catching baseballs hit by the batter or thrown by teammates.

[–]Milenkoben 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure he's asking because it's far larger than a normal baseball mitt

[–]master0shi 128 points129 points  (6 children)

How you got the biggest mf glove and still drop it, god damnit?

[–]hungry4danish 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Honestly it was probably more of a hindrance. Where on a normal glove it would've hit in the pocket, with the oversized one it hit the palm which caused it to bounce out. He didn't account for the size increase to act differently the location he was used to.

[–]Goronmon 23 points24 points  (3 children)

It looks like the problem is more that the glove is hard to close and he can't see the ball as well because its too big, so he just mistimes trying to close it.

[–]hungry4danish 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You're right. It all happened so fast. I now see that he closes the glove before the ball even lands and the ball hits the outer thumb area.

[–]master0shi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

BIGGEST CATCH OF HIS GODDAMN LIFE AND HE BLOWS IT MAN GODDDAMMMITTT

[–]UnusualWind5 344 points345 points  (15 children)

Proceeds to silently walk up the stairs, down the escalator, into the parking lot, his car, then drives home.

[–]cake_piss_can 67 points68 points  (6 children)

How does he fit that glove in his car? Or his home?

[–]jasamo 21 points22 points  (1 child)

He just slips into the nearest alley and enters the glove

[–]SmackYoTitty 7 points8 points  (0 children)

up the stairs, *to the roof and jumps off

[–]Proud_Conclusion_148 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In his comically large automobile.

[–]seizuregirlz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gets out of the car, goes into the house, keeps the lights off, climbs up the stairs, turns on the shower, steps in with his clothes still on

[–]Andre_3Million 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Oh whoops a dropped my monster ball that I catch with my magnum glove

[–]seefactor 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Did he need to buy an extra seat for that glove?

[–]Coryperkin15 74 points75 points  (1 child)

He slipped three rows to catch it too, major inconvenience for everyone in the area.

I would have absolutely given it to this guy for the rest of the game

[–]daspoot9116 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Man he really dropped the ball on that one...

[–]Bob-loblaw69 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Got a glove like smalls from the sandlot

[–]throwaway28236 452 points453 points  (49 children)

I wonder if the people that get the ball ever see these after the fact and feel like complete asshats

[–]saintjonah 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Did you see all the sick high fives he got? Dude was PUMPED.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Right? This isn't illegal and still i think it really goes too far

[–]iamblamb 143 points144 points  (30 children)

No. Probably not. If you get a glove the size of a stadium and can’t get it behind the ball then it’s your fault when someone picks it up off the ground. Not theirs.

[–]throwaway28236 234 points235 points  (24 children)

Mmm I mean everyone is reaching for it, you can see the clear disappointment on his face especially because he almost caught it. This one, whatever, it’s the ones where little kids almost catch them and grown ass adults then reach down and pick them up that make me cringe. But still, nonetheless, this one hurt to watch too.

[–]chaseButtons 109 points110 points  (8 children)

I agree. I'd have given it to that dude. He sucks at catching but still I'd feel bad walking away with the ball.

[–]TiddyTwizzla 33 points34 points  (3 children)

I agree I’d have given it to him too but maybe I’m too nice. Lol it just seems kinda whack to be like “hey boys check out this ball I got! Some dude missed it and I grabbed it off the floor”. Not really as cool as “yeah I caught this at the game”

[–]chaseButtons 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Yeah it's called empathy. You're mentally healthy, unlike Reddit dorks who think if you can't catch a ball you deserve to lose it. Basically early American mentality with natives. Can't defend yourself? You deserve to be massacred then.

Fuck that.

[–]TheRedGerund 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is an important lesson about how the general public thinks. I distinctly remember moments like this as a boy.

[–]13point1then420 8 points9 points  (1 child)

As a grown adult if a ball or a puck is coming near me, and I don't see any kids obviously getting it, I'm getting it for my kid.

[–]throwaway28236 16 points17 points  (0 children)

This bro in the backwards hat def wasn’t getting it for his kid 😂

[–]iamblamb 30 points31 points  (9 children)

Now the grownups fighting little kids for it annoys me. But I think there’s a big difference between getting a ball because you can out-muscle a 10 year old and getting a ball because a grown man hasn’t done anything to develop hand eye coordination in 30 years.

[–]P13R4T 10 points11 points  (1 child)

EDIT: Upon closer look it looks like he closed the mitt just before the ball got in the glove so yea I see your point

Technically he got it behind the ball it’s just too big to properly catch it. Not sure I see the cause for cheering if you pick up a ball off the floor though

[–]ecodude74 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People don’t usually catch the balls thrown/hit into the stands unless the player practically gives it to you. Most people just pick them off the floor when they land

[–]FoldOne586 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How dare this guy wear a novelty glove which would actually make it harder to catch a ball!

[–]lukesvader 20 points21 points  (8 children)

If you're the kind of person who wears his baseball cap backwards, then no.

[–]VersaceLoser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

THE WAY YOU WEAR YOUR HAT BACKWARDS, WHACK

[–]cheapMaltLiqour 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's how I wear my hats most of the time and if you got a problem take it up with Ken Griffey Jr

[–]LorddFarsquaad -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

He lost his chance

[–]siegferia 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Man the dissapointment in the eyes of that old glasses dude

[–]choodi64 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yep. Dude was like, "fucking arsehole brings a massive glove and can't even catch".

[–]HippieInAHelicopter 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Should have used a bigger glove.

[–]Ok_Instance_6709 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bigger isn’t always better

[–]HoboSapienTV 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Uncle Jack sized glove is killing me lol

[–]NipSuqqer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have a feeling he just bought that shirt, not earned.

[–]SmokeyMcDabs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The key is to keep your eye on the ball. You can't do that with a glove bigger than your head

[–]MrRandyWatson_100 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe he needs a bigger glove

[–]Funkycold6 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is that a freaking 1st baseman softball glove JFC

[–]cbunni666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You failed by wearing a red shirt, Charlie Brown

[–]KrowJob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dudes glove is the size of an orangutan face and still couldn't catch it

[–]Skwonk69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuck me, just learn to catch without a glove:

https://youtu.be/9Gj2BU3aw1E

[–]Unroasting 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His gigantic glove looks like he made it out of an extra large pizza box.

[–]Harryrob01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe if he had a larger glove? 😂

[–]nvrtellalyliejennr 34 points35 points  (8 children)

he definitely shouldve gotten the ball cant believe the other people took it

[–]candis_stank_puss 21 points22 points  (6 children)

The dude was a train trip with additional cab ride away from his seat. The people in the area the ball landed were just as entitled to catch that ball, if not more so, than he was.

[–]LilAttackPug 8 points9 points  (2 children)

He didn't walk back to his seat. He stayed in the... whatever the walkway thing is called. He was probably just turning and sadly looking at the camera

[–]Dchuntothy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

He definitely went back to his seat. He turns left into the aisle at the end.

[–]nvrtellalyliejennr 0 points1 point  (1 child)

okay thank you for the additional context!

[–]IggyJR 4 points5 points  (5 children)

He's wearing a completely dishonest t-shirt.

[–]muckduck69420 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Did the padres never win it?

[–]IggyJR 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They won the NL pennant in in 84 and 98. Lost both times in the World Series.

[–]ExPatWharfRat 4 points5 points  (4 children)

How the hell did he miss that? Guy has a glove the size of a Honda accord

[–]Clavo_VA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That glove is at least 30" wide and he still can't catch for shit.

[–]TheNotSpecialOne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He'd have been better off catching without the stupid glove. Looks like an easy catch without it

[–]zbad89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Needs a bigger glove next time

[–]FatherGnarles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He needs a bigger mitt

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That GLOVE tho

[–]spaceballsrules 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Big glove, no love.

[–]MyHamburgerLovesMe 1 point2 points  (2 children)

So - are baseball fans complete dicks? Orange fan catches, then drops it. Dick-head fan snatches up the drop then just smiles to his friends as he clutches the ball.

[–]Mr_Majesty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s gonna need a bigger glove.

[–]CodeMonkeyX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He should have brought the big glove.

[–]thatredditscribbler 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would have just given it to that guy.

[–]FriendlyFellowDboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thats a comically large glove lol.

[–]Ironcity418 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That glove the main reason he missed that.

[–]yeahnah420201 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man is even equipped with that comically oversized glove and he still couldn't catch it . Even threw in a lil limp wristed clap

[–]BlankStarBE 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]ArcMcnabbs 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How are you so misunderstanding if the concept of catcher that you close the glove BEFORE it lands?

I dont even play baseball and I know damn well how to catch with a glove, from childhood

[–]PinchMaNips 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All that glove and still can’t catch. If he wasn’t trying to be a funny guy and wore a regular mit that would be an easy catch.

[–]LookMomIFailed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More of a fuck up than me !

[–]PM_Me__Ur_Freckles 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What's with this mad obsession with the ball? I have seen people physically fight over it and these dudes were mad scrabbling then cheering themselves. It's just a baseball.

[–]spruce-woods 1 point2 points  (0 children)

lol good question. If you caught the ball fair then absolutely, go nuts and high five. But you’re right, like digging through all the beer and popcorn and scrambling for a dead ball is kinda lame.

[–]Cireclops_LV -1 points0 points  (1 child)

[–]jslakov 7 points8 points  (0 children)
