Major League Baseball has been having some problems this year with fan behavior. Fights have been breaking out in ballparks across the country. Sometimes, it’s refreshing to see something a little different happening in the bleachers.

During Tuesday night’s MLB game between the Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres, one fan came off looking as cool as a cucumber. Great American Ballpark attendees were delighted after a foul ball was effortlessly snagged by a fan. What makes it amazing is that he did it while feeding a baby.

With bottle and infant in hand, the fan simply reached out and grabbed the ball on a bounce. Not an ounce of milk was spilled, and the baby appears to have been oblivious. The ball will be a great souvenir and come with a fantastic story when the little one grows up.

Even the announcers were stunned by the incredible catch. They were stunned that the baby had absolutely no reaction. The lack of spillage really sealed the deal.


The struggling home team ended up losing the game by a score of 9-6. The Reds are mired in a massive slump. Cincinnati currently holds an unimpressive 3-14 record.

Maybe the Reds should think about signing this agile dad. If the team is going to lose at a historic pace, at least they can bring in someone who can catch a ball. The baseball might have stunk, but this baby will have a story to share forever.
