Dad Who Does Not Give Away Daughter At Baseball Game Hailed As Hero

Look, I like this clip as much as anyone, where the dad catches the foul ball, and then ... well, you should just watch it. It's absolutely adorable.

But what I find far funnier is the remainder of this news report, which treats this sweet, loving dad as some kind of model of class because he didn't become wildly angry at his three-year-old and leave her behind at the ballpark. I was half-expecting to hear, "Believe it or not, he has not cut her out of the will — MAN OF THE YEAR, am I right?"

Come on, local news. Dads actually give a lot of hugs.
