Things You Will NeedA good ticket
Step 1Sit where the most foul balls are hit. When buying tickets, focus on the areas between the dugouts and foul polls, along the first base and third base foul lines. Most foul balls are hit into the lowest level, but the upper levels in these sections are good locations as well. A decent location is behind home plate, but the area directly behind home plate is often blocked by a screen.
Step 2Take you baseball glove to the ball game. If you don't want to seem childish by wearing your baseball glove, keep it in a bag or under your seat where it won't be seen, but is still easily and quickly accessible if a foul ball comes screaming your way. Think of it this way: what is more embarrassing, whipping out your glove and making a nice play on a foul ball or dropping one, on national television perhaps, with your bare hands?
Step 3Go for the rebound. If you don't have a glove, wait for some other poor gloveless soul to attempt to catch a rapidly falling and spinning pop fly, or, worse, a screaming line drive. When the ball enters your section, get down on the ground and wait for the ball to bounce off the guy who hasn't caught a ball since little league, let alone without a glove. Then, snag the ball on the rebound or on the roll.
Step 4Bring a child with you. Children are foul ball magnets. People love to give foul balls to children. You should probably let the child keep the ball, but maybe he will let you play with it once in awhile.
