Dad Loses Son While Chasing Baseball (VIDEO)

We've seen sports fans abandon all common sense when a baseball comes their way. And in this case, a man at a spring training game abandoned something even more important: a child.

Skip ahead to the 55-second mark of the above video to see what can only be described as an "epic dad fail" at the Mets-Marlins game on Monday.

You may be laughing, but the woman in the background -- presumably the man's wife -- is not. Looks like someone might be sleeping on the sofa tonight (and that's assuming he's allowed back into the house).

Adding insult to injury, he didn't even get the ball.
