Watch A.J. Pollock's double somehow get stuck in between the padding of the left-field fence

Pollock's double gets stuck between wall padding

It's a difficult life, being a baseball. You're by definition just an inanimate object, and -- if you're lucky -- you spend your days being thrown around and smacked, thrown around and smacked. If you're unlucky, well, you occasionally end up taking a bath in some beer or ... worse

So let's take a moment to celebrate the courage of the ball A.J. Pollock smacked to left field during Friday's Padres-D-backs game. Hurtling toward the wall, it took a leap of faith and decided to chase the dream of baseballs everywhere: freedom.

Just remember, little guy: If you don't move, they can't see you!
