Watch: Woman catches foul ball in one hand with child in the other

Monday June 22nd, 2015

During Sunday's Oakland Athletics-Los Angeles Angels game, a woman holding a child found herself face to face with a foul. As the ball sped toward her, what did she do? Did she use her body to shield the child from the incoming projectile, or did she use her free hand to reach out and snag a souvenir? You better believe it was the latter.

A man in Angels gear had the good sense to reach out and prepare to catch the child should the woman drop him, but his services were thankfully not needed. The woman reeled in the ball and accepted high fives from he fellow spectators.
