Tosh asks the girl who threw her dad's foul ball back onto the field if she prefers baseball to tea parties. (5:01)

>> HI, EMILY, STEVEN.

>> HI.

>> NICE TO MEET YOU.

>> NICE TO MEET YOU.

>> THANK YOU FOR COMING.

WE BROUGHT YOU HERE BECAUSE IT'S

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS:

BASEBALL FOR YOU, AND A TEA

PARTY FOR YOUR DAUGHTER, BECAUSE

I ASSUME BASEBALL BORES YOU LIKE

IT DOES ME.

MY FIRST QUESTION IS FOR YOUR

DAUGHTER.

WHAT IS UP WITH COLE HAMELS THIS

YEAR?

[laughs] NO, I'M BEING SILLY.

TELL ME ABOUT THE DAY AT THE

BASEBALL--WAS THAT YOUR FIRST

BASEBALL GAME WITH YOUR

DAUGHTER?

>> NO, SHE'S BEEN TO A FEW GAMES

BEFORE.

THAT AS THE LAST GAME WE WERE

PLANNING TO GO TO.

>> DO YOU LIKE BASEBALL?

YOU DO?

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TEAM?

>> WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TEAM,

EM?

>> [whispers] THE YANKEES.

NO?

THE PHILLIES?

THEY'RE YOUR FAVORITE TEAM?

IS THAT THE FIRST FLY BALL

YOU'VE EVER CAUGHT?

>> YES.

FIRST ONE EVER.

>> HOW EXCITED WERE YOU?

>> UH, I WAS INCREDIBLY NERVOUS

AND UNBELIEVABLY EXCITED,

'CAUSE HERE IT COMES, YOU KNOW--

>> NOBODY ATTACKED YOU?

IT WAS JUST STRAIGHT ALL YOU,

BARE-HANDED?

>> YEAH, WE WERE FORTUNATE WHERE

WE WERE SITTING.

WE WERE RIGHT OVER THE RAILING,

SO THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE TO--

THE ONLY OTHER PERSON THERE WAS

MY WIFE.

SHE WASN'T ABOUT TO CATCH IT.

AND ALL I WAS THINKING WAS,

"DON'T DROP IT IN FRONT OF THESE

PHILADELPHIA FANS, AND

YOU GET TO TAKE A BALL HOME."

>> HOW UPSET WERE YOU?

>> THERE WAS A NANOSECOND OF,

YOU KNOW, "WHAT THE HECK JUST

HAPPENED?"

>> BUT YOU WERE AWARE THAT THERE

WERE CAMERAS ON YOU.

>> NO, I HAD NO CLUE.

>> SO YOU WERE LIKE, "LET'S JUST

FAKE THIS FOR ONE SECOND"?

NO?

>> NO, NOT AT ALL.

>> DID ANYONE HECKLE HER?

>> THERE WAS A--LIKE, A BIG,

LIKE, "OH!" KIND OF MOMENT FROM

THE CROWD.

THAT WAS THE ONLY--ONCE THEY

REALIZED THAT IT WAS A LITTLE

GIRL THAT THREW IT BACK, THEN

THEY IMMEDIATELY DID A 180 AND

KIND OF CHEERED AND SMILED.

>> PHILLIES FANS,

YOU HAVE GONE SOFT.

WHEN YOU THREW THE BASEBALL BACK

ON THE FIELD, DID YOUR DAD

SCREAM AT YOU AT THE RIDE HOME?

NO?

HE WAS NICE THE WHOLE TIME?

OH.

DO YOU LIKE TEA PARTIES BETTER

OR BASEBALL BETTER?

>> TEA PARTIES BETTER.

>> TEA PARTIES BETTER?

YEAH.

[chuckles]

YOU WOULDN'T THROW THIS AWAY.

NO.

WERE YOU SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH

INSTANT FEEDBACK YOU GOT

FROM THAT?

>> INCREDIBLY SURPRISED.

MY WIFE AND I WERE--WE JOKED

THAT WE MIGHT MAKE THE LATE

LOCAL NEWS OR SOMETHING THAT

NIGHT THAT IT HAPPENED, AND WE

DID, AND I WAS PUMPED, AND, YOU

KNOW, WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING,

AND IT WAS A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT STORY.

THERE WAS A MILLION PHONE CALLS

AND EVERYONE TRYING TO FIND OUT

WHO THAT GUY WAS AND HIS LITTLE

GIRL.

>> DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE

YOU'RE AT LEAST ELIGIBLE FOR

FATHER OF THE YEAR?

>> [laughs]

>> BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT MY FATHER

WOULD HAVE DONE TO ME,

HAD THAT SITUATION HAPPENED,

AND IT WOULD'VE NOT BEEN PRETTY.

>> IT WAS NICE THAT IT WAS A

GOOD MOMENT THAT EVERYONE GOT TO

SEE.

I HAVE CERTAINLY HAVE HAD NOT

GREAT MOMENTS, BUT THAT WAS A

GOOD MOMENT THAT EVERYONE GOT TO

SEE, SO ON THAT, I'LL TAKE IT.

>> DID THE PHILLIES ORGANIZATION

GIVE YOU ANY KICKBACK,

ANY PERKS?

>> WELL, WE GOT SOME NICE

JERSEYS.

WE GOT OUR PERSONALIZED JERSEYS.

WE GOT SOME SIGNED BALL--

SIGNED BASEBALL.

JASON WERTH SIGNED A BAT FOR ME.

>> THEY DID THIS ALL THAT DAY?

>> NO, THAT DAY THEY BROUGHT US

A NEW BALL.

>> EMILY, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT

FOR ME.

WHO WON THAT BASEBALL GAME?

DO YOU REMEMBER?

YOU DON'T REMEMBER?

DID YOU LEAVE BEFORE THE GAME

WAS OVER?

YOU DID?

YOU GOT TO BEAT TRAFFIC.

WHO DID WIN THAT BASEBALL GAME?

>> PHILLIES WON THAT GAME.

>> WHAT WAS THE SCORE?

>> 5-NOTHING.

>> DID YOU STAY THE WHOLE

GAME?

>> WE LEFT EARLY BECAUSE WE HAD

THE GIRLS THERE.

IT WAS A LATE NIGHT.

>> DO YOU THROW LIKE A GIRL

OR THROW LIKE A BOY?

>> A GIRL.

>> YOU THROW LIKE A GIRL?

THAT'S OKAY.

BE PROUD OF THAT.

I'M TOLD I THROW LIKE A GIRL.

WOULD YOU RATHER EMILY'S COLLEGE

PAID FOR IN FULL FOR FOUR

STRAIGHT YEARS OR THE PHILLIES

WIN FOUR STRAIGHT WORLD SERIES?

>> I'M GONNA SAY COLLEGE.

COLLEGE ON THAT ONE.

>> REALLY?

THAT IS VERY SELFISH TO YOUR

CITY.

>> [chuckles]

>> DO YOU THINK BARRY BONDS

SHOULD HAVE AN ASTERISK NEXT TO

HIS NAME?

NO? ME NEITHER.

I REALLY DON'T.

DID YOUR FATHER JUST NUDGE YOU

TO SAY HE SHOULD?

COME ON.

WHAT ABOUT BABE RUTH?

THAT'S WHAT I ALWAYS SAY.

THAT GUY GOT TO PLAY--BREAK

WORLD RECORDS BEFORE MINORITIES

WERE ALLOWED TO PLAY.

THERE SHOULD BE AN ASTERISK

THERE.

EMILY, WOULD YOU TAKE STEROIDS

IF IT MADE YOU BETTER AT TEA

PARTIES?

NO?

RIGHT.

HOW OLD ARE YOU?

THREE?

YOU'RE THREE YEARS OLD?

YOU ARE THE QUIETEST WOMAN

I'VE EVER GONE TO DINNER WITH.

THAT IS A FACT.

EMILY, MAY I HAVE SOME TEA?

OH, JUST--THAT'S PLENTY.

THANK YOU.

>> WHAT ABOUT DADDY?

>> WHAT ABOUT--YOUR FATHER WOULD

LIKE SOME TEA.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> OH!

YOU TAKE IT STRONG.

DON'T YOU WANT TO POUR YOURSELF

SOME?

YOU'RE DRINKING IT ALL.

CHEERS.

GET YOUR GLASS.

[slurping]

>> GEE, GOOD JOB.

>> DELICIOUS!

DO YOU WANT TO GO TO A BASEBALL

GAME NEXT YEAR?

YOU DO?

HIGH FIVE? THANK YOU.
