Mom Catches Foul Ball with One Hand – While Holding Baby with the Other

Tiffany Goodwin should play for the major league. The mom from Fredericksburg, Virginia, 31, caught her second foul ball in as many weeks at a Richmond Flying Squirrels game. This time, she made her catch in epic fashion, reaching out with her gloved hand, while holding her 8-month son, Jerry, in the other.

While his mom caught the ball, Jerry looked passively on, munching a biscuit.The amazing moment was captured by Mark Gormus, a photographer from the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The Squirrels were playing the Harrisburg Senators in the Double-A minor league game. Ms Goodwin had caught a foul line-drive at the park last week.
Ms Goodwin told the Richmond Times-Dispatch: ‘We were on our way to the game Sunday, and my husband said he’s been waiting 38 years and never caught a foul ball. I told him, ‘Maybe you’ll get a chance today.”‘ But then Ms Goodwin made the catch.
She told the newspaper, ‘He said, “I called you off, I called you off. I could have had it.” But it was already in my glove, and I told him possession is nine-tenths of the law!’ The photo of Ms Goodwin’s catch has been widely circulated on the Internet.
In the photo, young Jerry is shown wearing a helmet, which has sparked a lot of questions online. Ms Goodwin told the Times-Dispatch that he’s wearing a ‘shaping helmet’, to ensure his skull plates fuse properly. He’s said to have to wear it 23 hours a day for the next five months. Jerry’s sisters Elizabeth, 7, and Katherine, 3, are also seen in the picture.
The family has season tickets for the Flying Squirrels. They also like to go see the Washington Nationals, the Potomac Nationals (a Single A team), and the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (a team in Charles County, Maryland).
Ms Goodwin told the Times-Dispatch: ‘We really like watching minor-league games. They’re more family friendly. And we always take our gloves so we can protect the kids and ourselves’. Allen Goodwin, 38, also pictured, is in the U.S. Air Force, and now works for the Inspector General’s office at the Pentagon.
In the 13 years the couple has been married, they have lived in eight places. They also enjoy playing baseball and softball on community teams. Ms Goodwin said: ‘What I love about the picture is that Jerry is laid back, just eating his biscuit, and the reaction on my husband’s face’.
