Dad catches home run ball while holding his child

This particular dad now has a pretty amazing Father’s Day story…and when he tells it to the little one in his arms, he has video proof.  As he came up out of the tunnel to return to his seat at AT&T Park, he casually snagged a home run that had just been hit…one-handed!
