Seattle Mariners Fan Produced An Insane One-Handed Catch While Holding His Young Son
A Seattle Mariners fan has produced one of the most incredible one-handed catches in history while holding his young son and his drink.
The Mariners took on the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday and Luis Rengifo smashed a foul ball straight into the crowd during the match.
But the man, who has not been identified, coolly stuck out his hand to take one of the most amazing catches possible.
The entire stand around him had fans applauding his magnificent catch and the woman sitting next to him, presumably his partner and the mother of the child, was in utter disbelief.
The beaming Mariners fan stuck the ball up in the air before turning to his adorable little son, who seemed completely unfazed by the moment.
But he did try to take the ball from his dad in a cute moment towards the end of the clip.
There are reflexes and then there are...

Baseball fans have flooded social media with praise for the early contender of 'Catch of the Year' and 'Dad of the Year.'
"Sign him now," one fan demanded.
Someone else tweeted: "One of the many superpowers that emerge during parenthood!"
A third said: "Dad reflexes are REAL! That was awesome."
A fourth added: "And the son is unimpressed. But he [won't] be a few years from now!!!!!"
The Mariners suffered a 9-3 defeat to the Angels at the T-Mobile Park.
The Angels take the finale over the Mariners at T-Mobile Park. FINAL: 9-3.
Back at it tomorrow with the Texas Rangers coming to town for a three-game set. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m.
