Never been hit by a batted baseball.
Nope. Clemente almost did. The closest I have ever see was Sosa's Home Run that hit the Camera Booth in center field and that ball was at least 30 feet from the Scoreboard. Although no batted baseball has ever been hit from homeplate off of the center field scoreboard, it is not true that NO ball has ever accomplished that feat. Sam Snead, of professional golfing fame, accomplished it by driving a golfball off a tee at homeplate in 1951, which struck the scoreboard.
What year did mark grace hit the ball out of the park at wrigley field

It might be so that the batters don't lose their vision of the ball after it is thrown by the pitcher.
Wrigley Field....Home of the Chicago Cubs.
Try the ball parks: Wrigley Field (Cubs), or U.S. Cellular Field (Sox).
39-year-old Dave Davison retrieved the ball on Sheffield Avenue past the right field wall near Wrigley Field on July 19th, 2007.
If a golfer traps the ball, this means the player hits the ball with a downward strike, pinching the ball between the club and the ground, hence the phrase, trapping the ball, glad I could be of assistance to you :)
