The San Diego Padres Ball Girl who made quite a baseball opening day impression on the World when she made that huge grab of Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso’s foul ball headed right for the head of an LA Dodgers fan, still has the Internet buzzing. But everyone wants to know who The San Diego Padres Ball Girl is? She’s Catalina McKasson.
And according to her Facebook page, Catalina McKasson is a mother of three darling girls, and works as a probation officer with the San Diego County Probation Department and in the juvenile probation area. That should officially kill the idea that Ms. McKasson is a young college girl on a softball team.
McKasson has been associated with the San Diego Padres since 2002, and is part of a crew of women, many mothers, who work as ball women for the team.
