The Catch of a Lifetime

I was at today's game.  Putting the loss aside (which is easy to do when the Phils are off to a 7-2 start of the season), the game highlight, and one of my lifetime Phillies-game-attendance highlights, came in the bottom of the sixth inning.  With my 4-year-old son by my side, well, you can watch for yourself:

The smile on his face is beyond compare.  And "the lady" that Tom McCarthy refers to at the end is my mom.  After telling my son about foul balls earlier in the game, to get one, and to get one like that, later in the game was sensational.  He hasn't put the ball down since I gave it to him.

See what can happen when we bloggers get out of our pajamas and out of our mothers' basements?
