Dad Manages To Juggle His Baby And Beer While Catching Ball At Baseball Game

A dad at a baseball game has gone viral after a clip of him somehow managing to juggle his baby and a beer and making a grab for an errant foul ball. Check it out:

The man was at the Diamondbacks versus the Giants at the weekend with his young baby but when he saw the opportunity to land himself a ball from the game he took it.

In a clip shared on social media, the man can be seen letting go of his kid, reaching up, catching the ball and then catching the child before they hit the deck. Oh and he does all of this without dropping his beer.

Posting the footage online, Facebook user Matt Heaston wrote: "This guy... let go OF THE BABY momentarily to catch the ball.

"Then saved the baby and barely spilled a drop. Bottle didn't even fall. Watch it again.

"All the faces of the people around them."

As you can imagine, the clip has attracted plenty of attention, with more than nine million views and 124,000 likes.

Commenting on the clip, one Facebook user said: "That dude is officially my new hero."

Another wrote: "That guy is a legend."

While a third person added: "That's a new one for me... 'Hold my kid and my beer I got this'."

Bizarrely, this bloke is not the first multitasking parent we've seen at a baseball game in recent weeks.

Just last month a mum at a baseball game pulled off an incredible one-handed catch while holding her baby.

Lexy Whitmore was at the San Diego Padres versus Chicago Cubs game in June with her three-month-old son Maverick when she managed to snatch the ball out of the air one-handed.

In the clip, a foul-ball hit during the sixth inning flew up towards the upper deck, bounced off an aisle and ended up being caught by Lexy.

The shocked announcer could be heard to say: "Right-handed grab - baby in tow."

However, Lexy has downplayed her incredible catch, telling NBC San Diego she 'didn't think it was this amazing catch'.

She said: "So when the guy hit the foul ball, it came down.

"I saw it bounce, and it - honestly, it just kind of came right to me. I didn't think it was, like, this amazing catch and I didn't think it would go viral.

"But it, you know, came to me and there was no doubt in my mind that I wasn't gonna catch it."
