Dad Catches Home Run While Holding His Newborn

Get this guy on the field.

Twitter: Sportscenter

Every baseball fan dreams of catching a home run at a game. Sometimes so much so that they forget they’re holding a beer, or a hot dog, or as was the case at last night’s Phillies-Dodgers game, a baby. Yes, one dad sitting in left field at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park deftly snagged a home run ball hit with one hand while holding on to his baby with the other arm. It was impressive, to say the least.

Usually, when a parent tries to catch a baseball while holding a baby, it spells trouble for everyone involved. Not so in this case, as the hero dad makes the catch without missing a beat. Take a look:

The best part of the entire thing? The man’s baby seems to not even register what is going on. The newborn isn’t crying or cheering as their dad celebrates becoming a SportsCenter highlight. Instead, the baby just sits there stoically, likely slightly confused by their dad suddenly jumping up and down while everyone else is yelling.

  1. How stir crazy do your kids get on indoor days?
    Not very. They like being inside.
    For a time, they’re content. But they need to be occupied.
    Very. They’re like caged animals.
Thanks for the feedback!
