The remarkable footage of the moment a man catches foul ball while holding his baby and a beer should come with a caveat warning. Some news outlets have pointed out that he appears to struggle to hold onto his child at times during the footage, so if you are upset by such things please exercise caution before watching.

The dramatic moment took place during an Arizona Diamondbacks game in Phoenix, per the US Sun, when the father in question was somehow able to catch a foul ball while cradling both his baby child and his pint of beer.

Celebrating the remarkable feat of hand-eye coordination, the father raises his arms aloft, holding the baby, beer and foul ball in triumph. After all, it’s not every day a man catches a foul ball while holding his baby and a beer

Admittedly, he did spill a small amount of his beer during the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but even so, it’s a highly impressive – if somewhat risky – display of skill.

Perhaps the Diamondbacks should sign him up for a 10-day contract to see if he can replicate the feat for them, though perhaps this time he could leave his baby – and the beer – safely at home!

Another man previously gallantly used his can of beer to save his date from being struck by a foul ball. You can read more – and watch the video – here.
