Incoming! Hooters ball girl has embarrassing encounter with foul ball (again)

It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Hooters ball girls who patrol the foul lines at Philadelphia Phillies spring games. Apparently, these ladies are drawn to embarrassment and danger like men are drawn to hot pants and chicken wings.

Surely you recall the gal from last week who picked up a live ball and tossed it into the crowd. Today comes this: An un-alert ball girl doesn't move quickly enough when a ball flies her way and almost gets hit by the ball and bowled over by a New York Yankees player. Oops.

It turns out Tuesday was an especially blunder-filled day in the lives of Hooters ball girls. On the other side of the field, a Hooters girl totally Buckner'd two grounders and then got booed by the fans at Bright House Field at Clearwater, Fla.

These even happened in the same inning. Let's all facepalm in the unison, OK?

The spring's almost over so allow the Hooters girls to continue embarrassing themselves at Phillies games. But can we suggest something? Before trotting out these ladies again next year, someone at Hooters should invest in a couple Tom Emanski videos.
