Father Abandons Child in Pursuit of Spring Training Baseball, Panic and Hilarity Ensue

So perhaps that explains what this amazing dad did during today’s Miami Marlins-New York Mets game.

After chasing a ground-rule double, he realized he’d left his child to hurtle down an incline in a wheeled conveyance.

Luckily for all involved, disaster was averted.
