Oh baby! Mom holding infant makes catch

June 10th, 2021

SAN DIEGO -- Usually, it's the Padres who make dazzling catches at Petco Park.

But on Wednesday afternoon, the smoothest play of the afternoon came from a multitasking madre with a baby in her arm.

In the top of the sixth inning of the Padres' 3-1 loss to the Cubs, Chicago pinch-hitter Jake Marisnick shot Yu Darvish’s cutter into the seats along the first-base line.

The ball caromed off the upper deck, then once off the aisle, before a woman in a Manny Machado jersey made a remarkable stretching grab with her right hand, while holding a baby in her left arm.

Maybe Wil Myers was right, after all.
