Viral Cubs Fan Barehands Foul Ball While Bottle-Feeding His Baby
It seems like every week this baseball season we see a fan make an unbelievable catch of a foul ball.

The Cubs fan literally snagged the ball right out of the glove of Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
After a replay, the umpires ruled fan interference and the Cubs batter was called out.
Still, it was one heck of a catch. ESPN caught up with Keith Hartley, who was holding his 7-month-old son, Isaac.
Hartley said he reached for the ball because he was concerned it could ricochet and strike Isaac.
"I saw Twitter," he said. "My Twitter is going insane. A friend from work gave us these tickets as a gift, and I probably have 15 emails in the first 10, 15 minutes."
What was going through his head as he went for the ball with his son in tow?
"Baseball is not a new thing to me," he said. "I didn't want it to hit the ledge and hit him, so I wanted to make first contact, I think."
