The very happy father was captured on video doing a little dance after the catch.

It's a dad's dream - to catch one at a ballpark and hand it to his son.

That exact moment happened Sunday at Petco Park when Colorado Rockies third baseman and Escondido native Chris Nelson fouled one off San Diego Padres pitcher Dale Thayer in the 7th inning.

The unidentified Padres fan, wearing the camouflage gear, was obviously excited after catching the ball and then, after handing it off to his son sitting next to him, did a little big of a dance.

Doubtful he knew that dance would be caught for all to see AND would soon be trending as the "Fan Favorite" video of the day on the team's website.

We'd love to know who you are Dad! Drop us a line.
