A fan made possibly the catch of the year in Sunday’s Phillies-Mets contest. Didn’t even drop his ice cream. Watch:
97 mph off the bat? No problem.— ESPN (@espn) May 3, 2021
Dude made this bare-handed catch look easy 🤯 pic.twitter.com/U0mEbdtzeA
See, ladies? We have the ability to multi-task — we just have to care about what we’re doing. In this case, a 97 mile-an-hour liner was no match for a $10 ice cream cone and a bare hand. And no offense to the Mets, but I think this kid deserves a try out. Couldn’t get much worse for this years Mets, could it? Team just fired hitting coach Chili Davis because they can’t the broadside of a barn.
Anyway, we sure hope the Phillies do something for this young man. It’s good PR to reward fans for an epic performance.
