(Newser) – She pops out babies and catches pop-up fouls. Call her supermom. Tiffany Goodwin, 31, proved she can do just about anything after she snagged a foul ball during a Richmond Flying Squirrels minor league baseball game in Virginia—while cradling her baby son in her right arm and as one of her two young daughters clutched her leg. One family member feeling decidedly out of the action was hubby Allen, who watched, stunned, as his wife snatched the ball just as it was about to settle in his waiting glove. "He said, 'I called you off. I could have had it.' But it was already in my glove, and I told him possession is nine-tenths of the law," Tiffany chortled.

"What I love" about the Richmond Times-Disptach photo of the the action is that baby Jerry "is laid back, just eating his biscuit—and the reaction on my husband's face," she added. The Goodwins are huge baseball fans and regularly attend Washington Nationals, Potomac Nationals, Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, and Squirrels games with their three young children. "We really like watching minor-league games," said Tiffany, who played for two softball Air Force teams. "They're more family friendly. And we always take our gloves so we can protect the kids and ourselves." (Read more Tiffany Goodwin stories.)
