Photographer Jeff Chiu took this amazing photograph of a fan catching a home run with his left hand while holding a baby at Sunday's Giants-Rockies game at AT&T Park.
Aaron Hernandez Due in Court to Seek Dismissal of Charge The catch came during the third inning. The fan later walked away calmly as people cheered him on, both baby and ball safe in his hands.
Here's a close up of the moment. Best Father's Day catch ever?
Video at site.
It was a great catch nonetheless.
Charged no doubt with CBWMWHB. (Catching Ball Without Mitt While Holding Baby).
A bad bounce and that could have been baby’s last.
Nothin’ to it!
It was hit by Tulowitzki.
Tull wanted the ball because it was fathers day and he wanted to save a Father’s Day home run ball he hit.
So the guy gave it to him and Tulo gave him an autographed ball.
No harm, now foul.
But still well worth a major league baseball. /
And why would they drag Aaron Hernandez into court over this? He's getting blamed for more things than George Bush lately.
Sign him up.
No Mitt (Romney), no problem.
No Mitt, no problem. That was my prediction for the 2012 election.
Hahaha! Her date ducks for cover and she catches the bat!! Love it!
and he aint gettin any tonight
Yeah, he’s not someone I’d want in my foxhole.
Hire that guy!
Her boyfriend is a wuss
She kept her eye on the bat — while using her male companion’s head as a shield.
The quintessential image of modern women.
But since the bat was headed straight for a small child seated behind her...I’ll say kudos!
No, the fan caught the baby who was holding the home run.
You know at first I thought it was a story about the GOP doing without Romney, I must say I was disappointed as I kept reading.
jiggygirl says if she could hold it in one hand, she ain’t interested. :-)
“Journalists” do seem to have grammar problems these days.
Plainly the headline writer meant ...Fan Holding Baby Catches Home Run..., since what he wrote glosses as you had it, that the home run was holding a baby, or (I’m not sure whether more or less absurdly) that the fan caught a baby who was holding a home run (reading the present participle having home run as its object and functioning as an adjective).
