Man uses cap to save baby from foul ball (VIDEO)

Say what you will about the new caps of the Miami Marlins, but one actually ended up a hero during Tuesday night's game against the Astros. Well, maybe the guy who used the cap to stop a foul ball from hitting a small baby was the actual hero, but I wouldn't miss this opportunity if I were in the team's merchandising department. ("Baby-saving caps for sale!")

Here's the video of the catch. It's a little hard to see, but you can hear Marlins team president David Samson doing a little play-by-play as it unfolds. And there's no way he'd ever intentionally deceive us.

Right?
