ARIZONA – For one baseball fan, his little son will have an awesome story to share when he gets a bit older.
Justin Kirkpatrick was sitting in left field with his family on Friday night as the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates took on the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The MLB cameras caught Kirkpatrick make an awesome one-handed catch as he held his 11-month-old son in the other hand.
“I don’t even know. I just saw it coming, and I reached up and it kind of just fell into my hand,” he told a reporter.
The Diamondbacks took the baseball and got it signed by the player who hit it, Wellington Castillo.
