Braves fan catches a foul ball while holding a baby (Video)
Bringing babies to the ballpark is a scary thing. Great snag or not, I cringe every time I see a play like this on a highlight reel. As you can see from the video above, another fan made a tremendous play on a foul ball this week while holding a baby in his arm. From the the look of it the guy had a strong grip on the child, but I held my breath when he lunged for the ball. I guess if you’re going to bring a baby to the ballpark you might as well incorporate him or her into the act of souvenir collecting.
At least this Braves fan didn’t dangle his child over the wall to make the play like some fans we’ve seen. However, he is hardly a hero like the fan who caught the foul ball that was heading directly for the baby. That, in my opinion, is how you make a play.
