This is beyond cute!
The Philadelphia Phillies had a tough day on Thursday, losing at home to the visiting Toronto Blue Jays 13-2, but while the MLB team wasn’t showing out well on the field, one fan stole the show.
Brian Kucharik, a dad who brought his daughter to the game, is going viral right now after he caught a foul ball off the bat of the Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar… but it’s how he did it that’s catching everyone’s eye!
Kucharik, sitting down the first base line, caught the ball one-handed — which is impressive enough considering how hard these balls get hit — but he also did it with his daughter Emily in his arms, AND while carrying a full plate of hot dogs and french fries!
Ch-ch-check out Brian doing his thing in real time and winding up with a nice souvenir (below)!!!
After the amazing catch, the cool dad spoke to the team broadcast for an interview, saying:
“I’ve been playing for about 30 years now. It looked like a normal fly ball from the outfield, I put my hand up — I’m lefty — so with my right hand, catching the ball was pretty easy.”
Pretty easy, but not easy enough to keep his fries! Ha!!
Fortunately, the Phillies did buy him a new pack of fries for the trouble.
