Angel In The Outfield?

BASEBALL

A fan at Seattle's Safeco Field had a moment of glory but did the home team no favor by catching a foul ball before the Mariners' sliding leftfielder, Ronny Cedeño, could put his glove on it during the Opening Day game against the Angels on April 14. Seattle went on to win the game 3-2 in 10 innings. Later that month Cedeño, 26, was moved to the infield, and in July the Mariners traded him to Pittsburgh, where he finished the season at shortstop.

"BASEBALL ENGAGES US IN WAYS NO OTHER SPORT CAN. I LIKE THIS PHOTOGRAPH BECAUSE IT CAPTURES A MOMENT WHERE THE UNLIKELY YOUTHFUL DREAM OF MAKING A PLAY IN THE BIG LEAGUES COMES TRUE. HOW COOL IS THAT?"
