Just over a week ago, a Cincinnati Reds fan displayed some impressive multitasking by catching a line drive foul ball in one hand while holding his kid in the other.
Apparently he’s not the only one who can pull that off.
In the third inning of a matchup between the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park on Saturday, a sure-handed Tigers fan snagged a foul fly ball with his left hand while holding his young daughter with his other arm.
Perhaps even more impressive than dad’s nice catch was the reaction — or lack thereof — of his daughter, who didn’t even bat an eye as the ball sailed right toward her.
There’s a very good chance that she had no idea what was going on, so the cheers her father received after keeping her out of harm’s way were likely well-deserved.
As for the game, Tigers fans had plenty more to cheer about, as a three-run homer from slugger Miguel Cabrera sparked a 9-3 win.
