Phillies fan grabs foul ball with baby strapped to his chest

Monday May 11th, 2015

Every year there are dozens of fans who overcome impediments like popcorn and beer and nachos to snag foul balls, but the most impressive fan catches always involve babies, and a Phillies fan came up with a great one over the weekend.

Mike Capko took his wife and child to Citizens Bank Park for Mother's Day and had strapped his seven-month-old son to his chest when a foul ball careened towards him. Despite that encumbrance, he made the catch.

The fan told a reporter that he knew to remain vigilant as he was sitting in prime foul ball territory behind home plate, and he is happy to have snagged his son his first foul ball on his wife's first Mother's Day.
