Is there something a mom can’t do? It’s an overused phrase, I do know. But it surely’s fairly true. I’d wish to think about that somebody, someplace, truly has an inventory of all issues the super-moms can do on the market. Now, it’s time so as to add, “mother naked arms foul ball with child in hand” to the file.
Within 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 a giant bounce at area degree, and went in the direction of a lady in a Manny Machado jersey. She solely had one hand free, although.
In another state of affairs, I’d anticipate a father or mother to protect their baby from a foul ball — particularly if mentioned baby is a child. However that’s not what occurred right here.
The mother bent over backwards to snag the ball in her proper hand whereas retaining the newborn clutched in her left.
I imply, that is in all probability the catch of the yr in or out of the diamond.
You may watch the whole clip under.
“That’s a pleasant seize,” one announcer mentioned, “watch out of the baby, although.”
This yr, 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 properly, did it, fellas.
Just a few 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, ought to be “no.”
