Woman Catches Baseball In Her Prosthetic Leg During Chicago White Sox Game

A woman has used her prosthetic leg to catch a baseball at a Chicago White Sox game in the US the other day. Check the video below out, it's absolutely incredible:

So, not only did the woman manage to grab the baseball in her prosthetic leg, she did it at a match in the biggest baseball league in the world, after having consumed at least five beers.

If she continues on like that, she might even get a game.

In a piece of remarkable skill and quick-thinking, 27-year-old Shannon Frendreis grabbed her right leg off and managed to hold it up as the ball perfectly dropped into it.

It's not immediately clear whether it was actually a home run or a fly ball, but we'll just imagine that it was the former, shall we?

As we've covered, to make matters even more impressive, she was presumably half cut, having had quite a bit to drink beforehand.

It's a once-in-a-lifetime grab, that's for sure.

She shared the moment on TikTok, captioning the video: "Five beers in, and taking my leg off to catch a ball seemed like a great idea."

Naturally, people who have watched the video are raving about it.

One person said: "How did that not make ESPN's highlight reel?"

Shannon responded: "Asking myself the same question."

The match in question, if you're into baseball, was between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers.

The vast majority of the crowd in Chicago will have gone home disappointed, as the White Sox lost the Major League Baseball fixture 5-2.

However, anyone who was standing near to where Shannon was in the stadium will have seen an incredible feat of catching as a consolation.

It's not all bad, at least.

Another viewer said: "Took an arm and a leg to catch that ball."

Very good, very good indeed.

Another commented: "Let's talk about how you're standing on 1 leg 5 beers deep catching a ball with your other leg.

"High five sis!"

Yep, that's about right.

Obviously, she was pretty pleased about it. Credit: TikTok/@shannonnkay

Shannon has even been contacted by the Dallas Stars NHL - ice hockey, that is - team, who called her a 'star in the making'.

This is big news, because it seems as if Shannon is a big hockey fan, and said that the sport is her 'number one'.

Well, even if she prefers hockey more than baseball, she seems to certainly have a career in the sport somewhere with catching skills like that.
