Kalaf: No One Can Find Raul Ibanez’s Foul Ball

This ain’t like finding a batted ball in a haystack.

aul Ibanez hit a foul ball in today’s Angels-Indians game. That’s not odd. The odd part is that no one found it.

Ibanez’s foul ball went into the empty upper deck of Progressive Field. One fan ran up to try and get it. He did not. More people walked up to comb the sections. Their efforts were fruitless. There is no happy ending to this video. No one found Raul Ibanez’s foul ball.

On the bright side, a few of the fans did manage to take selfies with Jimmy Hoffa.

If only the Angels could lose Raul himself...

So it was an undescended projectile?

I think it's with the WMD in Iraq and the frisbee I lost in the sand on Cape Cod when I was 9.

We always knew Raul Ibanez would have an important role in proving the existence of wormholes.

Stanton's HR disintegrated in flight. The ball that went over the fence in Miami was actually Ibanez's foul, passed through a wormhole.

Perhaps Sabrina cast her magic on the ball, and it's now in the Other Realm.

Little bads would have found it.

Ichiro could make a ball disappear if he.... whatever.

Reminds me of my tee shot on the 7th hole at East Potomac earlier this year. Managed to hit it far and straight down the fairway and yet somehow we never did find the golf ball. I have a feeling that the guys in front of us took it but it did make me mad that one of my few shots that managed to actually resemble something akin to the flight of a golf ball got gobbled up by the ether.

The Doctor got the chameleon circuit working, and the ball ended up on the TARDIS, disguised as an empty seat.

Have they found Raul's bat yet?
