A BASEBALL fan took an incredible catch from a home run shot despite having his baby in one of his arms.

Philadelphia Phillies star Franco hit his second home run of the night to cut the Dodgers' lead to 7-6 in the ninth inning.

As the ball sailed away from the field, a group of supporters gathered underneath the sailing shot with arms outstretched.

But a Phillies fan managed to reach over with his one free hand to pluck the ball out of the sky.

The capped-fan, complete with Roy Halladay shirt, caught the shot with his hand bent backwards in a brilliant move.

And the youngster in his left hand, also wearing bright Phillies red, took it all in his stride.

And baseball fans were full of praise for the style and grace with which he snatched the ball from the heavens.

Lita Schmitt said: “We were sitting right behind him. The baby's mother/his girlfriend was sitting to his left w the ball going directly at her. It was a great reaction from him to catch the ball so it didn't hit her, while also shielding the baby…to those who comment on him putting baby in danger."

Derek Bigelow said: “To the guy who caught the bare handed home run ball while holding the baby…… nice snag buddy! That was an impressive back handed catch across your body while not dropping the child. I’m sure the wife must have been proud of the effort……?
