Good news for the ball girl: This'll get her a close up on "Inside Edition."

Baseball's an interesting game. Players get beaned and brawls start when a team winning by six runs lays down a bunt, because that violates an "unwritten rule" of the game. But Hooters girls pick up live balls — contrary to an actual written rule — and we all laugh about it because they're pretty.

Oh well, it's just spring training. Let's go eat some hot wings.
