One dad is going to have a hard time topping this year’s Father’s Day in the future.
During Sunday’s San Francisco Giants-Colorado Rockies game, one lucky dad got a pretty sweet souvenir on his special day when Troy Tulowitzki crushed his 18th home run of the season. The father, who was walking up to his seats with his baby in one arm, made the most casual of grabs, snagging Tulowitzki’s two-run blast with his free hand.
Most people with two free hands and no child in sight wouldn’t react that nonchalantly, but it looked like it was just another day in the life of the coolest dad in San Francisco. His day got even better — believe it or not — after the game when Tulowitzki caught wind of who had caught his homer.
“I heard it was a father holding a baby who happened to get the ball,” Tulowitzki, who had the ball with him at his locker after the game, told The Denver Post. “So I gave him some presents. And hopefully for that good catch he got rewarded.”
