One of the thoroughly Californian and unique features of Petco Park is the beach in the right field gap. Little kids build sand castles as their parents lament barely being able to see the play on the field
So far this series, Adam LaRoche hit three home runs that are coming perilously close to hitting little children playing.
On Thursday, his home run ball impacted about 3 feet from an adorable little kid wearing the San Diego combo of a hooded coat and shorts.
On Friday, he overshot the kids on the beach and hit the ball into the boring group of adults.
Again, on Friday he came six feet away from hitting an adorable little kid with a red shovel. With a the four game series wrapping up on Sunday, he might need to wait until next year.
