One father took the spotlight at Sunday's Mother's Day game at Citizens Bank Park between the Phillies and the Mets.
Mike Capko made a one-handed catch of a foul ball hit by a Mets player, all with his baby son Kolton strapped to his chest, CBSPhilly reports. Capko's wife Alyssa was next to him.
“There’s no way I wasn’t catching that ball,” Capko told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Monday.
"It was unreal. I was just sitting there watching the game with the 29,000 other people. You don’t really have a reaction, you just kind of have instinct and my instinct was kind of shift to my right a little bit, stand-up, and catch the ball.”
Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman and commentator Mike Schmidt autographed the baseball for the Capko family.
