A Phillies fan caught Maikel Franco's second homer of the night with his baby in tow

Maikel Franco's bat appeared to be on fire during the Dodgers' 7-6 win over the Phillies on Monday night. He smacked a homer to left-center field in the bottom of the second. But it was his second home run of the game that had a fan showing off some very impressive catching (and babysitting) skills.
In the bottom of the ninth, on the first pitch he saw, Franco cranked a ball over the left-field fence for his 15th dinger of the season. A fan caught it, but this wasn't just any fan. Oh no, this was a dad who caught the ball while still clutching onto his child:

As you can see, the fan was very excited to make the play -- and if you look closely, it appeared Mama Bear made sure the baby Phillies fan was safe and sound.
Add that to the baby book.
