You know, it's a few GIFs of a kid who got an Adam Jones home run ball.

This was from the end of last week and just didn't make it into the post until now.

PIGEON BUZZES RYAN WEBB

Apparently they have all manner of wildlife inside the domed Tropicana Field. Not all of the animals are confined to the aquariums. Some of them like to harass Ryan Webb.

Here is an only slightly dramatized reenactment of the scene.

Ryan Webb liked the GIF.

CRUZ MISSILE HITS THE CATWALK

Actually it appears that this ball, hit by Nelson Cruz, bounced off of a light attached to the catwalk. I felt that was a lot to put in the title.

It would have been fun to see where this landed if it were a foot lower or to one side or the other. As it was, it ended up falling onto the outfield (but was still called a home run, of course).

HARDY'S SUNFLOWER SEEDS CELEBRATION

And after a moment...

Finally! J.J. Hardy has been hitting for average, but going through an uncharacteristic homer drought. Hopefully this is a sign of more good things to come.

We've seen a silent treatment solo celebration before this season.

TILLMAN'S NICE SNAG

I just liked how Chris Tillman seemed to check once and then twice to make sure the ball actually found its way into his glove. Then he no doubt straightened up and did his tough guy saunter to the dugout, like he had everything under control.

CALEB JOSEPH HIT A HOME RUN

Yeah, maybe you'd expect this to be a GIF of the actual 1st MLB home run by Caleb Joseph. I kinda liked the reaction from Bud Norris a bit more, in GIF form.

Also, if you look at the 2nd GIF you'll notice that Bud yelling about it seems to cause the run to be added to the score.
