Pope Francis Jumps Up To Catch A Baseball, Drops The Ball And His Cap

It is nice to see that even at the age of 77, with one of the most demanding jobs out there, Pope Francis is still in touch with his playful side.

At the end of his weekly audience in St. Peter's Square on Wednesday the pope was thrown a baseball by someone in the crowd. Rather than acting the part of stately world leader, Francis let his guard down to jump for the ball.

While he might not be the most graceful of athletes, the pope gets 10 out of 10 for effort -- and for being adorable.
