Man Catches Foul Ball While Holding Baby

What's More Impressive: The Catch, That He Held On To The Baby, Or The Baby Holding Onto The Soda?

Every day during the baseball season, we see some pretty impressive catches. This one, however, even rivals DeWayne Wise's catch late in Mark Buehrle's perfect game last week.

This guy caught Carlos Ruiz's foul ball off of Dan Haren... without dropping his baby. Or even making the kid cry. The most impressive part, in my opinion, is that the little kid didn't even drop the soda during the whole thing, despite the fact that the soda was almost bigger than he is. Nicely done, both father and son.

Only bad parenting if he drops the kid.

Gotta be the kid not dropping the soda... the only way to one up this is now to do the same thing while the kid holds a beer.

Sweet catch.  I'm guessing that if his wife saw the video, he got a smack in the head for going after the ball.

 If he dropped the baby that wouldn't be good.
