Phillie Phanatic dives on dugout for foul ball, gives it to young fan

The Phillie Phanatic is a very skilled creature: it's got a diverse repertoire of dance moves, could probably have a second career as a stunt driver and has a mean running crossbody:


Apparently, it's also been working on its scavenging skills because a foul ball landed on the Phillies dugout on Father's Day and the Phanatic lunged without the slightest hesitation, crawling to corral the souvenir:


As is dictated by Unwritten Rule of Baseball No. 284, Section 11, the Phanatic promptly gifted that souvenir to a nearby child because that's how you baseball, people.
