A San Francisco Giants ball girl seems to have temporarily forgotten the rules of the game.

The other night as Joaquin Arias was chasing after a pop-up, the ball girl inserted herself into the play, attempting to catch the ball as it was still in play.

Luckily, he was able to catch the ball, despite the interference. As for the girl, she was embarrassed, mortified, and apologetic.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
