TAIPEI, Taiwan - A Taiwanese baseball fan got himself in hot water with his wife when he dropped their young daughter into the stadium seats in front of him in a bungled attempt to catch a foul ball during a televised game.


The man, identified by his surname, Bai, reached for the foul pop from his upper deck seat while holding the toddler in one arm during last week's game between the Brother Elephants and Lamigo Monkeys in suburban Taipei.


The ball bounded off Bai's other arm as he lurched forward and let go of his child.


The girl was not badly hurt, but her mother clearly was not amused, as shown in TV coverage of the game that became a hit online. She shot her husband a piercing look of anger.
