Most people won’t ever be lucky enough to catch a foul ball at a baseball game, but one sure-handed fan put the rest of us souvenir-seekers to shame.
During a Tigers-Twins game this weekend, a dad-and-daughter duo were strolling back to their seats (or maybe heading to the concession stand, who knows?) when a foul ball rose up in the air and began falling right toward them. The dad, while securing his toddler in his right arm, reached up with his left and made a clutch one-handed grab. His daughter, meanwhile, remained blissfully unaware of her father’s spectacular achievement. But lucky for us, the TV cameras did not.
Unfortunately—and quite unfairly if you ask us—the dad may be sleeping on the couch as punishment for his heroics. Whatever. We say it’s worth it.
