Best dad ever is in Philadelphia

Steve Monforto is the talk of the nation after his daughter throws back a foul ball at Citizens Bank Park — and he responds with a huge hug.

Steve Monforto wins the award for father of the year after his reaction to his daughter throwing a foul back back onto the field of play at Citizens Bank Park during a recent Philadelphia Phillies game.

Here's the backstory. Monforto has been attending Phillies games for years but never snared a foul ball. He finally does so after making a pretty good catch. After handing the ball to daughter Emily, she then threw the ball back onto the field.

His reaction was the best: He flashed the biggest smile and hugged his daughter.
