I was shocked when I saw the man in front of us cradling a newborn who couldn’t have been more than 2 weeks old. A few minutes later my companion expressed same disbelief. It wasn’t just a girl thing.
Later in the game, as foul balls were being hit our way, the man in front of us turned to his friends. “I’m going to make ESPN’s top ten. I’m going to catch a foul ball, bare-handed, while also holding a baby. That’s what I’m talking about.”
The two men he was with laughed. The woman half jokingly said, “If your wife sees you on tv trying to catch foul balls and not doing the duck and cover with the baby, you’re going to be on a list alright. And it ain’t going to be ESPN’s. That’s what I’m talking about.”
