CHICAGO (CBS) — Catching a foul ball is a rare feat at a baseball game. Doing so while clutching a baby is an even more impressive accomplishment.
The Cubs’ Jason Hammel hit a foul ball with two outs in the second inning that had Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez reaching across the tarp Tuesday in foul territory. His effort was interrupted by a man holding his baby.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Warmer Sunday, But April Snow Possible Tuesday
Unfortunately for the Cubs, the play was reversed on video replay and ruled fan interference, but not before the Wrigley Field video board displayed the replay and the man received a standing ovation.READ MORE: 3 Killed, 2 Wounded In Kenosha Bar Shooting; Shooter At Large
The man was later reported to have been Keith Hartley, an Andersonville resident. He told the Tribune that his wife wasn’t upset with him, as some perceived him to be putting seven-month-old Isaac in danger.
“Kari sat there shaking her head,” Hartley told the Tribune. “She knew what was going to happen. She knows my athletic prowess and how it was going to go down, and it went exactly as she expected.”MORE NEWS: Chicago Weather: Cooler Trend Next Week After Quiet Weekend
