Padres Ball Girl Saves Baseball Fan From Fly Ball

Talk about maternal instincts.

When Padres ball girl and mom Catalina McKasson saw a foul ball zooming toward a Dodgers fan, she didn't even think—she caught the ball before it could hit the unsuspecting guest, according to Yahoo! Sports.

But it's no big deal to McKasson, who's been with the team in this capacity since 2002: A couple years ago, she caught a similar foul ball headed for the Braves bullpen during a game (which was unprotected, unlike normal baseball bullpens), according to the Huffington Post.

The best part? After both of these big saves, McKasson lobbed the prize ball to a grateful fan in the crowd.
