This Rockies broadcaster successfully reels in a foul ball without leaving her seat

During the Rockies' 8-2 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Thursday night, broadcaster Jenny Cavnar was sitting on the third-base side just past the visitor's dugout when a foul ball came skipping toward her in the fourth inning. Staying cool in a moment of pressure, she came up with the ball without ever leaving her seat, brandishing it proudly above her head. 

Breaking down the replay, Cavnar's coworker Jeff Huson was appropriately laudatory: "It was a thing of beauty."

Later, however, Cavnar explained that the catch was a little more chaotic than it might've appeared. Here's her reenactment of the moment:

Either way, she impressed at least one Rockies fan -- her husband.
