    Softball Couple Didn't Like the Dirt on this Diamond!

    Last saturday this newly engaged couple were out with some friends tossing and batting a softball around. The lady had a ball glove on and when she took the glove off and tossed it to her friend her ring was not on her hand. She rewound her mind trying to think if she had the ring on or not when she put the glove on.
    So for about 10 hrs looking at all the places on the field she was and with friends with a friends metal detector they still couldn't locate the ring.
    I answered her call and arrived today on site to discuss the details. Setting up the MXT I searched the smaller areas she remembers being. Then I went to the outfield where she remembered taking the glove off and on between fielding the fly/ground balls. Quite a bit of area to cover and grid but thanks to my bigfoot coil I was able to cover the area quickly and after an hour and a half I went towards left field and got a +22 and overload signal and thought well this was a different event that hadn't happened with the MXT so I garrett carrot'ed the pinpoint and peeking out below the grass and dirt this beautiful ring revealed itself!
    Now that's a home run to remember!

    NICE!!! What an excellent story, teleprospector, those huge smiles say it all...that is one beauty of a ring, that unit wasn't cheap! I got a call my first year of detecting, a soccer coach lost a $2500 platinum wedding band, I showed up with 30 mins sun left and looked 20 mins after it set. I took the coach's contact info and told him I'd be back in the morning...his expression revealed disappointment, disgust and a hint of distrust...I think he thought I mite be holding out, truth was...he was from a big city and I guess people there just don't do things like this for other people...I show up after bfast, and within 20 minutes I'd recovered it and sent him the picture of it. " I'll be there in 45 minutes!!" he beamed...he showed up with a totally different expression, and $70 worth of Max n Erma's gift cards!! Two happy guys lol...so Teleprospector, I can relate to the feeling, getting out of one's self to think of someone else in need. The free steak that night wasn't bad either! Way to go, it's a feeling that stays with you for a while...Ddf
