Mother’s Day foul ball

In case you missed it, here’s a dad who made an impressive bare-handed snag of a foul ball at yesterday’s Mets-Phillies game — and he did it with his seven-month-old son strapped to his chest.  The ball came off the bat of Daniel Murphy, and the father, Mike Capko, had never caught a foul ball before in his life.  He then turned and gifted the ball to his wife, the new mother.  It’s too bad the Phillies couldn’t pull off a victory towards a more perfect Mother’s Day.

    that might be the last game the mother allows the father to go to a game, with the kid strapped on anyway. That coulda been very tragic.
