Just when we thought we had seen everything when it came to foul balls, we got something new. We’ve seen adults steal foul balls from children, mascots get hit in the throat by them, and guys catch them in their beer cups. Now, we present a one-armed military veteran who caught a foul ball at a Yankees game:
The gentleman’s name is Michael Kacer, a 29-year-old man from Waymart, Pennsylvania. Kacer spent 11 years with the National Guard and lost his arm in a rocket attack in Afghanistan in 2008. Along with over 20 other people, he attended the Yankees-Rockies game Friday night as part of Achilles International, “a New York-based nonprofit providing mainstream athletic opportunities for people with disabilities.”
Kacer got to meet Nick Swisher and Joe Girardi before the game, and he probably ended up being the most impressive figure after making that sweet grab.
