Fan in Philly catches an early Father's Day gift while holding his daughter
An alert fan at Citizens Bank Park got an early Father's Day gift during Thursday's Phillies-Blue Jays game.
With two outs in the top of the first inning, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar sent a foul ball into the seats along the right-field line. Among the many arms reaching for the ball was the right arm of a man holding his young daughter on his lap.
"I've been playing for about 30 years now. It looked like a normal fly ball from the outfield, I put my hand up -- I'm lefty -- so with my right hand, catching the ball was pretty easy," the fan, identified as Brian Kucharik, said, per MLB.com.
Incredibly, Kucharik never left his seat or really even budged. And his daughter never seemed to notice what happened -- she already appeared to be drowsy in what truly was a snoozer for Phillies fans, who witnessed a 13-2 loss.
Never mind the souvenir, get this guy a contract.
