And now, let’s see how I stacked up in terms of my 2013 ballhawking goals:

1. Have multiple double-digit games- Yes. I had six this year.
2. Snag 4 or more game balls- Nope. I only got two, both in the last month of the year.
3. Snag multiple game home run balls- No; I don’t want to talk about it.
4. Snag 100 thrown baseballs, 100 hit balls, 50 on the fly, 10 Easter Eggs, and 5 Glove Trick balls- Nope. I didn’t do that well at all this year in the hit ball department with going to Target Field too much and snagged two too few easter eggs.
5. Give away a third of my baseballs or more- Since I tell everyone that I give away about a third of my baseballs, I figure I should make it a point to actually live up to that figure. I did last year, so I’m hoping to repeat.
6a. Average 4.5 Balls Per Game- Yes
6b. Average 5 Balls Per Game- Just barely not.
7. Go to a new stadium- Nope. Dang it.
8. Go to 50 Games again- Yep. I actually almost got to the 65-game mark.
9. Make it to 100 straight Games with at least 1 Ball- Yes; I’m actually at 126 right now.
10. Do all of this with a new glove- Kind of? I switched gloves often, but this was more out of a desire for variance rather than failure to learn how to use my new glove. I actually really liked making catches with my giant lefty glove.
