VIDEO: Mom holding baby snags foul ball with amazing one-handed grab

Weird - Off Beat

SAN DIEGO (NEXSTAR) – Multitasking is a way of life for moms, but one Padres fan took it to the next level Wednesday. In the top of the sixth inning, cameras captured a woman wearing a Manny Machado jersey, a baby under her left arm, reach back to snag a foul ball struck by Cubs pinch hitter Jake Marisnick.

Video shows the ball caroming off the upper deck and into the stands along the first-base line where the unidentified mom reached made a sparkling play, according to “This was quite the catch,” one announcer says.

“The right-handed grab and baby in tow,” his booth partner replies. “It’s a nice grab, be careful of the little one though.”

The infant, unaware of his mother’s fielding skills, appeared unbothered by the catch and subsequent celebration. It was a highlight from an otherwise rough game for the Padres faithful, who watched their Friars go on to lose 3-1.
