WATCH: Phillies fan makes incredible bare-handed catch while holding his baby

Last night as the Philadelphia Phillies took on the Arizona Diamondbacks, a fan in the crowd made the play of the game on a foul ball hit into the stands.

With a baby in his right arm, the man made an incredible bare-handed, one-handed catch with his left.

Top marks for body positioning (putting the baby as far away from danger as possible while still making the play) and hand-eye coordination. Just a tremendous show of dad-body athleticism.

And of course, after it was all over, they took pictures for posterity’s sake.
