Dad of the Year Catches Foul Ball With Daughter in Arms

Making a catch bare-handed is an accomplishment in itself. Doing it while holding a child and other stuff in your arms is in a class all its own.

During a game between the Blue Jays and Phillies, one dad went the extra mile to catch a foul ball and he did it with one hand while still hanging on to his daughter. That's tough. The dad's explanation made it look like it was just another day at the park for him.

"I've been playing for about 30 years now," the dad told the broadcast. "It looked like a normal fly ball from the outfield, I put my hand up — I'm lefty — so with my right hand, catching the ball was pretty easy."

Even though the man spilled his fries, the Phillies rewarded him with more. It's the least they could do.
