Reds Fan Holds Onto Kid While Trying To Catch Home Run Ball (VIDEO)

It seems like fans are making more headlines in baseball than players this week. First, a Tampa Bay Rays fan that turned out to be former NBA center Matt Geiger interfered with a foul ball causing Carlos Pena to miss the catch. A few days after that a couple at a Rangers fan snagged a foul ball and caused the child next to them to hysterically cry. And on Thursday night, a Reds fan attempted to catch a home run ball.. while holding on to his kid.

In the bottom of the sixth with the score tied at two, Jay Bruce crushed a two-run homer to the stands in right-center field. Holding his sleeping child with his right arm, a fan went to catch it with his left hand while his supposed wife took shelter and ducked a few seats away.

The fan did not catch the ball, but at least he didn't drop his kid.
