Constitutional Law Scholar Makes Circus Catch at Phillies Game

April 15, 2010

Professor David S. Cohen, a constitutional law scholar and avid Philadelphia Phillies fan, fielded a foul ball with a spectacular one-handed catch in the April 15 game against the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park.

Leaning over the deck railing as Shane Victorino swatted away a foul in the bottom of the sixth inning, Cohen caught the ball with his bare right hand, without spilling the ice cream that he held in his left. Cohen immediately turned the ball over to his 4-year-old son, Josh.
