Awesome Baseball-Catching Mom To Be Honored Tonight
It turns out she caught another fly ball at the previous night’s game. Fans in attendance at that game say the first catch was even better than the Saturday night catch. One fan wrote to the newspaper: “Friday’s catch could have been the greatest catch by a fan I have ever seen. It was a line drive bullet that she snagged at eye level about 7 rows up from behind the 3rd base dugout. still holding the baby. When I was the picture I thought it was from Friday’s game except she was standing, looking up, The first catch was a pure reaction/self defense catch.”
I love this mom. And the good news is that she is going to be honored by the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the Class AA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. The Goodwin’s have season tickets there and she’ll be presented with a golden glove trophy with the date of the catch on it. She’ll also be given a team jersey. This woman is who I want to be when I grow up.
