Video: Man catches foul ball with a baby in his arms

Sep 30, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

This is nice and all, but I know a guy who is probably caught hell from the missus when he got home.

Look, it was a nice play, buddy. But those were poor fundamentals. You coulda dropped the ball!  Next time, toss the baby aside and use BOTH HANDS to snag it.  I see you doin’ that again, it’s $5 in the fine jar.  Now go do your laps in the outfield.  (h/t to Vince at The Cleveland Scene):

    Isn’t there a team he could play on?

    This is even better than the guy who one-handed a foul ball while carrying a tray of two or three beers in the other hand with no spillage. Bravo!

    This is what Michael Jackson was TRYING to do in Berlin.

    Doesn’t count — that ball bounced off a seat.

    Cross something off the bucket list vs. protect your child.
    Phew, a toughy.

    Concur. Now if he’d barehanded it on the fly? Legend.

    Bringing to mind the Dave Barry line about the difference between men and women: “If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant’s life, she will choose to save the infant’s life without even considering if there are men on base. “
