Dads are amazing, aren’t they? Not only did a dad fan catch a home run ball, which in itself isn’t the easiest thing to do, he did it while holding a baby AND he made it look like it was no big deal. I have never seen anyone make catching a ball look so easy, much less catching a home run ball while holding a baby. If he wasn’t paying attention, that ball could have clobbered that kid in the head!
Making the home run even more special was that it came off the bat of Tulowitzki. He was playing in his first game since his son Taz was born in January.
Tulowitzki said, “I heard it was a father holding a baby and he happened to get he ball. I gave that father some presents, and hopefully for that catch he got rewarded. I didn’t meet him, since it [the exchange] happened while I was still playing.”
Maybe the force is with him.
I’m guessing this is one day he will remember. A home run ball is definitely better than a tie, right? Plus he has an amazing story to tell.
