Baseball legend Willie Mays was known for some great catches. On Friday night, a fan wearing a Willie Mays jersey also made a notable catch – holding a baby in his hand.
This happened in San Diego during an MLB game between hometown Padres and the visiting San Francisco Giants.
Giants Batter Pablo Sandoval hit a long fly ball to the left field. San Myers, the outfielder of San Diego, jumped but could not reach the ball when he cleared the fence for a homerun.
A closer look reveals that a fan wearing a # 24 Giants jersey (Mays & # 39; old number) grabs his right hand with one hand and with his bare hands was holding a baby with his left arm at the time. (It was not clear if the baby's mother was as happy as her father about the catch.)
The San Francisco Chronicle later identified the fan as Chris Rice and the baby as his 5-month-old daughter Roya. [1
