Most professional ball parks have them. Coca Cola Park does not. I wondered why, maybe you all could help me understand.
A ball person sits down the foul lines and scoops up foul balls down the line. Their basic purpose is to run after the errant balls, not in play, and allow the game to proceed faster as the outfielders won’t have to chase down those foul balls. Did I hit a topic there? Speed of play? Faster games?
The Phillies actually have a ball girl team. The organization takes time to select local athletes, yes athletes, where they work every Phillies games and also work hard on charity projects throughout the season. Charity, faster games AND pretty girls. Well, being the equal opportunists we are.. I would suppose both women and men could perform this task.
