What is one of the best ways to spend Father’s Day? Well, if you ask MY dad it would be exactly how he did spend it. Eat breakfast that he didn’t have to cook and then lounge around hanging out with his grandson. That’s my dad, though. Most dads like to spend any Sunday during the summer at a baseball game; they just use Father’s Day as a reason to take their kid with them.
This dad must have known the camera was on him or knew that he wanted to make something go viral. He did a damn good job of it when he was walking back up the walkway into Coors Field at Sunday’s Rockies-Brewers game.
Not only did he barehand a home run blast from Troy Tulowitzki, he did it while holding his kid.
The best part of this is he catches it and then nonchalantly walks back to his seat. https://t.co/ZWawbK7aH6

As the Fine Brothers would say: “That dude is a BAAAADDDDAASSSS-UUUHH”
Peter Bukowski of Sports Illustrated said that the best part was the way he nonchalantly walked back to his seat. I have to disagree with him. The best part was the fact that he kept his kid from seeing a baseball flying at its head.
If a home run from Tulowitzki and a video going viral and even featured on ESPN isn’t a great Father’s Day gift, I don’t know what is.
