Brian Kucharik barely flinched as a foul ball came sailing into the stands. He effortlessly caught it in one hand while holding his daughter and a snack tray steady with the other, astounding fellow spectators. See the catch:

The catch happened last Thursday at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies met the Toronto Blue Jays, and earned Kucharik admirers including Katy Perry, who tweeted, "Get a dad that can do it all!"
Dads catching foul balls while holding children seems to be a trend, notes Newsweek: It's happened multiple times this year alone. In April, baby-toting dads made winning catches within two days of each other.
"I've been playing for about 30 years now," Kucharik told MLB.com. "It looked like a normal fly ball from the outfield, I put my hand up -- I'm lefty -- so with my right hand, catching the ball was pretty easy."
Kucharik did lose his french fries in the bargain, but the Phillies gave him new ones, on the house.
