The person who accused me wasn't just some random fan. It was the Pirates' bullpen catcher! See for yourself -- this was total B.S. And just so you know, I've attended more than 1,600 Major League Baseball games over the past 30 years and *never* knocked anyone down. That's not what I do or who I am. I'll admit that I reached in front of people for some toss-ups many years ago, but I learned from my mistakes. Now I try to be generous, and I've always been extremely careful not to bump into anyone, so this kind of nonsense is super lame. There've been lots of false accusations over the years, but there's zero proof. So many lies. So many haters. So much sloppy journalism. Good thing I now have a videographer with me at most of my games so I can reject these bogus claims.
Aside from the drama during batting practice, this was a fascinating day for several reasons. First of all, stadium security finally cracked down on fans using ball-retrieving devices. Secondly, I headed up to the upper deck to take in the best view in MLB, and third, a Pirates player suffered a devastating/career-threatening injury.
Shout-out to my friend and fellow ballhawk Erik Jabs (aka "Jabs Family" on YouTube) for helping me get into the LF seats early with the season ticket holders and for being generous over the years in many ways. Check out his channel if you get a chance:

Thanks so much for watching -- much love and stay tuned for MANY videos coming up this week. I've fallen far behind, but I'm going to try to post one video per day. Yow!!
