Little Girl Fires Daddy's Foul Ball Back!!!

9/16/2009 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He made the catch of the game -- pulling in a foul ball at yesterday's Philadelphia Phillies game from his seat in the stands -- but when Steve Monforto handed the precious ball to his little daughter Emily ... she threw the ball back onto the field!



Monforto was all class after the blunder -- immediately turning to comfort his daughter ... because he "wanted to let her know that ... she didn't do anything wrong." Dude also told MyFoxPhilly.com that a Phillies rep brought him a replacement ball as a souvenier later in the game.

As for Emily -- girl's got one hell of an arm!

Jon how do you know this guy? Just curious.

The guy is a real sweet heart. He was not upset. Besides when you have a toddler you expect these things to happen. I was watching the game when it happened and all I was thinking was that my 2yr old would probablly do something similar or give it away to another kid. The guy was there with his wife and two kids. Great family moment and great family memory.

#17 has daddy issues, must not have been hugged as a kid or daddy did way more than hug you. Get therapy or dont, nobody cares about you.

A simple, but poignant lesson for all Dads as to what's really important. Good for you, Steve.

What a good dad. I know some selfish Dads whose first reaction would not have been their daughters feelings. Kudos to this Dad!

I was sitting right below them at the game...too cute! The Phillies staff went to great lengths to retrieve the original ball and return it to this family. The replica went to the guy who the little girl dropped it on.

That is by far one of the cutest things I've ever seen. This is a guy who loves his little girl way more than baseball. His reaction was so genuine and sweet. That was a really heartwarming moment.
