Bat Boy Takes Phillies LF Ben Revere’s Bat on Foul Ball, Gives It Back

Nobody can question this Philadelphia Phillies bat boy’s dedication. When he sees a ball hit, his first instinct is to go grab the bat.

He just needs to be a little more aware of the situation.

In the top of the fourth inning of Sunday’s game against the Washington Nationals, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere attempted to bunt for a hit. The ball rolled foul, so the at-bat continued. However, when Revere returned to the batter’s box, his bat was already back in the dugout.

A chuckling Revere was able to signal for the bat boy to bring him his lumber in order to finish the at-bat. Revere grounded out on the next pitch.

U.S. Military, Residents Mark Memorial Day Weekend At Fleet Week Events

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — While many residents head for Tri-State Area beaches this Memorial Day weekend, others chose to mark the holiday with a visit to Times Square for Fleet Week happenings.

As 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported, it’s the ultimate shore leave, especially if it’s your first trip to Times Square.

“Oh it’s way more than I thought it would be,” said Pfc. Logan Burke, of Louisiana. “I mean, it’s super compact down here and just so many people, so busy. But it’s great, I’m really enjoying it here.”

Burke spent Sunday posing for pictures with New Yorkers and tourists alike. He and his fellow Marines were showing off their equipment, including a light-armored vehicle and a Humvee.

Isaiah, 11, was thrilled to climb inside and take a look.

“I think it’s pretty cool and I hope that the people that go out are safe,” he said.

Other Fleet Week events on Sunday included military ship tours, Navy dive demonstrations, a Marine Air-Ground Task Force demonstration and U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue demonstration.

Ben Stiller’s Mother Anne Meara Has Died At Age 85

Legendary comedienne Anne Meara died at age 85 in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Anne was wife of fellow comic Jerry Stiller and the mother of Ben Stiller, and we cannot imagine what her entire family is going through at this time.

Ben and Jerry announced the tragic news on Sunday, but did not give details on what caused her death.

In a statement, the Emmy-nominated matriarch’s family remembered her life, saying:

“Anne’s memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne.”

We wish Anne’s family nothing but the best as they cope with their loss.

Indy 500 Winner 2015: Highlights, Twitter Reaction of Juan Pablo Montoya’s Win

A number of team changes, a lengthy stint in NASCAR and even some career turmoil: A lot has changed since Juan Pablo Montoya’s 2000 win at the Indianapolis 500.     

One thing that hasn’t is the man can sure drive a car. Montoya overcame teammate Will Power down the stretch Sunday, capturing his second win of 2015 and second Indianapolis 500. The Spaniard overcame a disappointing qualifying effort to battle his teammate for most of the day, eventually taking the lead for good with three laps remaining.

As noted by Phillip B. Wilson of Scout.com, Montoya’s two wins have the largest gap in history:

The two races also have their fair share of other contrasts. In 2000, Montoya led 167 of the 200 laps in one of the most dominant performances in Indy 500 history. On Sunday, he led only nine, taking the lead when it mattered most and holding on late.

Matt Rodewald of 670 The Score highlighted the contrast:

Montoya’s triumph comes in his second year since his return to open-wheel racing. He finished fourth in the point standings in 2014, regularly contending but never quite reaching his former heights. Things have flipped on their head this year, as Montoya has five top-fives in six races while galloping to the IndyCar points lead.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. congratulated his former Sprint Cup competitor on the success:

Power, Charlie Kimball, Scott Dixon and Graham Rahal rounded out the top five. Montoya, Power and Dixon spent a majority of the day battling, with the latter two, trading the lead a number of times. Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated complimented Power for his congratulatory post-race interview:

Open-wheel legend Mario Andretti also complimented Power and Montoya for their late-race battle:

While not the distinction he’d necessarily want, Dixon is the first pole-sitter to ever finish fourth, per Jake Query of IMS Radio Network:

As is typical of the Indy 500, there were plenty of racers who didn’t have their days ending in glory. The likes of Tony Kanaan and Ed Carpenter each fell well out of competition after crashes. It was Carpenter’s second wreck in as many weeks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, though this one was far less severe than his qualifying wreck. Mike Dyce of FanSided documented Kanaan’s crash:

Other notable on-track moments included Tristan Vautier running into two members of James Davison’s pit crew and a multicar crash that paused the race for multiple minutes down the stretch. XFinity Sports captured both events:

Despite the occasional scary moment, the biggest day in open-wheel motorsports went off without a hitch and saw Montoya arguably return to his place atop the sport. There is no telling whether this is a blip or a sign of things to come. But two wins in three career races likely mean Montoya’s here to stay among the Indy 500 contenders.
