Oakland A's fan catches foul ball while holding child (Video)


An Oakland A's fan snagged a foul ball while holding his kid during extra innings in Friday night's game against Detroit.

It happened in the top of the 12th inning with two outs as Tigers batter Victor Martinez hit a foul popup out of play down the third base side. The fan held his child with his left hand while stretching out his right arm and catching the ball with his glove, competing against several other fans to get it. The child was never in any danger.


Somebody give that fan a contract.

The A's scored in the bottom of the 13th to pull out the 1-0 win.
