A young Phillies fan was hardly impressed by his slick one-handed catch off a bounce

The Blue Jays beat the Phillies' split-squad team, 6-4, on Friday afternoon, but that didn't dampen the spirits of one young Phillies fan. He got to go home with a souvenir and look cool in the process.
In the top of the seventh, Kendrys Morales lifted a long fly ball the other way, down the left-field line. The kid was sitting in the front row near the foul pole, so he was in the perfect position. The ball hit the warning track and bounced up ...

... directly into the kid's extended hand. Slick.
The kid standing next to him brought a glove, but this fan didn't need one. He didn't even need his other hand! He just stuck his hand out and snared it, all without breaking a sweat.
He didn't even seem that impressed with himself. He held the ball up, smiled a little and went about his day.
