I was sitting in sec. 105 maybe 40 feet from the guy who caught the HR ball. It was just before the 7th inning stretch and Screech was there getting ready to sing with a bunch of kids. When the guy caught the ball, everyone was yelling "throw it back!" and even Screech got into the action with hand (wing) motions, etc. The guy threw it back, everyone cheered and then security came over and took him (and his young son!) away, and of course everyone booed.  People were yelling at security "Hey, your own mascot told him to throw it back!"

About 10 minutes later the guy and his son were led back to their seats and Screech, who was still in the vicinity, gave the guy a big hug. I wasn't sitting close enough to find out what security said or did to him, but it was a funny scene.

Hey loshjott, welcome to the forum, and thanks for the indepth reporting on the ball-throwing incident!  That screech is like a teenager, he just can't resist living a bit dangerously.

If you get the urge, make sure to stop by the "Welcome new posters - introduce yourself thread" and take your 15 minutes of fame.
