Reporter to Foul Ball Tosser -- Explain Yourself!

9/17/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With a mic in her face and reporters lined up and down the block, the 3-year-old little girl who threw back her daddy's foul ball is finally coming clean about her big boo-boo at the Phillies game this week ... and it's the cutest thing ever.



In a well-crafted statement to NBC Philadelphia, a confident Emily Monforto explained, "I dropped the bahh."

Seriously, she's the cutest thing we've ever seen.

Can't stand kids, and this little girl is a spoiled brat. This story is a total waste of time. She could have hit someone on the head by throwing that ball, she should not rewarded she should be spanked!

Wow, it's strange that so many people are angered by this story. I agree that it's a bit of overkill at this point, but it's something that made me smile. Usually, when you turn on the TV, it's nothing but war, death and disaster. I don't know why anyone would call the kid a brat. I'm sure what she knows of ball play, is if someone throws it, I throw it back. Kudos to dad for brining his little girl to the game.

#14, yay: um, sorry you give them too much credit...this was a local news guy interviewing her, not tmz. You should have known simply by the fact that they could form a sentence correctly.

The original vedeo was a cute...super cute video. But reporters outside her house? That's ridiculous. Isn't there a Gosselin kid with a wiffle bat and a poor dog somewhere to report?

For jerks printing rude comments, you are heartless, dark souls and i hope something tragic happens to you real soon --you are wastes of human beings. i hope you are found behind a wall.

Apparently, some TMZ readers aren't familiar with honesty, innocent humor, and wholesomeness.

Sweet kid, sweet dad, cute story, best wishes to them both.

This is the best example of how parents should treat their children. He hugged his little girl... She is the cutest thing ever and I can see from a young age that she is going to be great at baseball or softball....

Wow, you people should solve world peace. What is the big deal on the words she threw the ball or she dropped the ball. Maybe he doesn't want to hurt his little girls feelings. It not like he is testifing in a homicide case. I think she should throw out the first pitch at the World Series...it goes to show baseball is fun family entertainment.
