man catches foul ball while holding baby

Catching a foul ball at a baseball game can be pretty tricky when it's flying directly toward you at a very high speed -- so it must be about a million times more difficult when you don't have both hands free.

But one fan who attended the Atlanta Braves vs. Chicago Cubs game on Monday proved a one-handed catch can be done -- because he managed to catch a foul ball in his bare hand while holding onto his baby at the same time.

He had to think pretty quickly in order to make the catch, and you'll see how he reached up high above his head to grab the ball in the video clip below.

Can you believe he caught that ball -- and managed to hang onto that kid?! And I love how the baby is just chilling out, kind of staring up at the ball wondering what the heck is going on.

This dad definitely knows how to multi-task, and while he was lucky to make that catch, he's even more fortunate that the foul ball didn't wind up hitting the baby. (I wonder if the thought of that happening crossed his mind as he was reaching for the ball? Scary!)

Have you ever caught a foul ball at a baseball game?
