A Dodgers ballgirl made a fantastic catch on a 108.7 mph liner, protected fan in process
The two primary jobs of a ballperson are as follows:
1. Protect the fans at any cost
During the eighth inning of the Dodgers' 14-3 win over the D-backs on Sunday, a Dodger Stadium ballgirl fulfilled both of these responsibilities -- exceeding the second requirement with a fantastic grab on Brandon Drury's foul liner:
According to Statcast™, the ball was traveling at 108.7 mph (!!) -- a speed that results in a hit 81 percent of the time when it's in play. It also might've knocked over an ever-precious beer. For this ballgirl, it was just another day at work.
