As Bourn later explained to the Akron Beacon Journal, he had the ball coming off the bat but lost it in the gloaming. It happens to even the best of glove-men.
"Golly, I find recent baseball events, insofar as they concern me, to be ridiculous and unfortunate. I shall perhaps spend the rest of this stupid day walking with head down and shoulders slumped, not unlike Charlie Brown after one of his serialized defeats," says Bourn's visage at the end.
