Fan at Wrigley Field snags foul ball while holding baby
Wednesday June 24th, 2015

A fan nursing a baby under one arm at Tuesday night's Dodgers-Cubs game managed to use his other hand to interfere with a catch Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was attempting to make in foul territory.

The catch, which came on a foul pop-up from Cubs' pitcher Jason Hammel in the bottom of the second inning, was admittedly quite a pluck - the fan received a standing ovation from the Wrigley Field crowd.

But it did not sit too well with the Dodgers. 

After conferencing with Gonzalez and manager Don Mattingly, and determining that the man reached over the first-base line tarp and into the field of play, umpires called fan interference.

The bold move also didn't sit to well with the Dodgers' broadcasters. 

"Mister, there are bigger things in life than a foul ball," one of them chided, while Gonzalez joked after the game "It would've been more impressive if the baby had caught it, according to the Loa Angeles News Group's J.P. Hoornstra
