For Pete's Sake

Here are the best baseball catches this season ... by fans holding kids

You’ve likely seen the Cubs fan who snagged a foul ball while still feeding his baby during Tuesday night’s game between Los Angeles and Chicago.

It’s been a trend this season.

Here is the Cubs’ fan catch, which honestly, was great.

That wasn’t the first catch by a nimble fan. Check out this woman who snagged a foul ball while holding her infant son at the Angels-A’s game Sunday :

Then there was this guy who grabbed a ball during a Phillies game last month:

By the way, the Cubs’ fan didn’t have the best catch of the night, at least not when you consider a catch could save someone some pain. Check out this Rays fan who saved his younger siblings from being hurt with a catch while dad got out of the way. It came during the Toronto-Tampa Bay game.
