We all love the ballgirls that protect the lines at a Major League Baseball game. Fear not fans who sit in the first rows along the foul lines – the ballgirls are here to protect you from flying foul balls (and if you’re lucky they will throw you a ball after they make a great play). This season in particular, there have been some amazing snags by ballgirls across the country.
