Illustration for article titled Man Catches Home Run In His Left Hand While Holding Baby With His Right

Our resident videographer is off today, so we'll have to make do with this until more replays pop up, ideally in slow motion and looped for all eternity: Nats. Reds. Bases empty, Werth at bat. Sam LeCure on the mound. Werth swings at the first pitch he sees. Deep right-center. Man. Baby. Ball. No glove, no hesitation.


It might be negligent parenting, but it is definitely some of the best fielding we've seen so far in this young season, from fans or professionals. And hey, the kid is still alive. Rewind and enjoy.
