A father at a Philadelphia Phillies game on June 16th had the play of the day when he coolly snatched Kevin Pillar's foul ball out of the air while holding his young daughter and some hot dogs. The fan never stirred from his seat, simply raising his right arm at the elbow to pluck the ball—which would've been a homer had it been blasted a few degrees to the left—out of the air. Sports announcers and the Phillies crowd were audibly impressed. A high five was given. His daughter, snuggled in his lap, seemed like her nap had been rudely disturbed.
