Baby Trying To Eat A Phillies Home Run Is 'Absolute Cutie.' Team Agrees.

A three-run home run hit by the Phillies’ Mickey Moniak became a potential snack for a baby on Wednesday in Philadelphia. (Watch the clip below.)

The tot didn’t know it was Moniak’s first big-league home run and wouldn’t care anyway. It just looked scrumptious!

But Mom made an excellent defensive play to keep the baseball out of the little one’s mouth.

The internet was charmed, as was the home team.

“How cute was that kid who got Moniak’s HR ball on a scale of 5 billion to eleventy billion?” one fan asked on Twitter.

“Eleventy billion,” the Phillies’ account responded, referring to an amount bet by a fake Keanu Reeves in a “Saturday Night Live” spoof of “Jeopardy.” The nonexistent number is used to point out something in the extreme.

“Confirmed: Moniak home run baby is an absolute cutie,” the fan wrote.
