Is there something a mom can’t do? It’s an overused phrase, I do know. But it’s fairly true. I’d prefer to think about that somebody, someplace, truly has a listing of all issues the super-moms can do on the market. Now, it’s time so as to add, “mom bare hands foul ball with baby in hand” to the file.
In the sixth inning of yesterday’s Chicago Cubs — San Diego Padres recreation, Cubs pinch-hitter Jake Marisnick fouled a Yu Darvish pitch off into the seats behind first base.
The ball hit the higher deck, took an enormous bounce at area degree, and went in the direction of a girl in a Manny Machado jersey. She solely had one hand free, although.
In some other state of affairs, I’d count on a mum or dad to defend their little one from a foul ball — particularly if mentioned little one is a child. But that’s not what occurred right here.
The mother bent over backwards to snag the ball in her proper hand whereas maintaining the child clutched in her left.
I imply, that is in all probability the catch of the year in or out of the diamond.
You can watch the whole clip beneath.
“That’s a nice grab,” one announcer mentioned, “be careful of the little one, though.”
This year, we’ve already seen guys attempt to catch foul balls or residence runs with a plate of nachos and a full (plastic) glass of beer. That didn’t go very nicely, did it, fellas.
A couple of years in the past, although, we did see a dad casually snag a foul ball barehanded whereas his daughter took a nap on his lap.
So is there something a mother can’t do? After watching this video the reply, once more, needs to be “no.”
