A man standing in the lower deck and holding who appeared to be his young son made a nice catch at the Miami Marlins game Sunday afternoon of a foul ball hit by Adeiny Hechavarria.
Some fans in the ball's path flinched, and others ducked, when the ball came zipping by, but Marlins Dad showed no fear reflex and caught the ball as he reached with his bare right hand while holding on tight to junior in his left arm.
This guy is what every man should want to be in a father. Sturdy, steady and fearless (on the outside). Marlins Dad also got a nice high five from a worker at Marlins Park. The club also should think about offering him a Ball Dad gig, but only if he works in pairs and feels like he can repeat the trick.
The kid had a big smile on his face, though probably won't remember the incident in 10 years, but he'll always have the video and the ball.
