At a Philadelphia Phillies game on Mother's Day, it was a dad who stole the show.

Pennsylvania dad Mike Capko, 30, made a bare-handed grab of a foul ball off the bat of the New York Mets' Daniel Murphy with his infant son, Kolton, strapped to his chest. The catch drew a roar from the Phillies' faithful and a smile from Capko's wife, Alyssa, while Capko celebrated.

Capko said it was the first foul ball he had ever caught at a game in an interview with Comcast SportsNet.

"You know, it was already a special day for us, of course, Mother's Day and his first game, but now we'll never forget it," Capko said.
