Watch Pope Francis Try to Catch a Baseball


Looks like Pope Francis is ready for some playoff baseball.

The 77-year-old pontiff urged an onlooking fan at St. Peter’s Square to
throw him a baseball, despite his nervous-looking security detail.

 
The fan was behind a barrier that was just yards away from the leader of
the Catholic Church, but that didn’t stop the pontiff from encouraging
the fan to throw him the ball.
The ball bounced in the pope’s right hand, before falling to the floor.

The encounter took place at the end of his weekly audience at St. Peter’s Square.
When he dropped the ball, a bevy of the security guards dived to
retrieve it for him. The pope, a known soccer fan of the Argentine club
San Lorenzo, then signed the ball and returned it.
