I am pretty far into my life and I have NEVER had the chance to catch a foul ball at a baseball game. I am assuming this Dad never had that chance either, until now. So whether he’s got his child in his arms or not, he is going to catch this ball. All of his childhood ballgame memories flashing before his eyes as soon as the ball left the bat. The ball gets there, for a split second I know in his mind, he was like “oh s#!t, I have my baby” which caused the juggle, but he continued his concentration, made the catch, and by some miracle didn’t drop the baby either.
Everyone in his section went bananas when he made the catch…..except his wife. The way she looked at him is like when someone takes one of my french fries without asking, just the death stare. I am not sure when he will be able to hold his child again, but what I do know if he will have that baseball on the mantle for the next 30 years of his life.
