Watch this Cardinals fan make an impressive catch ... using her purse

Typically, you see a fan in the crowd with a baseball glove ready to catch any ball that comes his or her way.

In this case, it was a purse that was used to catch a foul ball --- yes, a purse.

During the bottom of the seventh inning of the Cardinals' 8-4 win over the Pirates on Sunday night, Yadier Molina hit a foul ball to the right side behind the visiting dugout.

A Cardinals fan sporting an old Albert Pujols jersey caught it using her bag.

No glove? Nothing wrong with a little improvising.

She had fallen a bit after making the impressive grab, but her husband was there to catch her.

The broadcasters loved it, as did the Busch Stadium crowd -- doling out high-fives and a standing ovation.
