Joe Torre passed his good hands along to his daughter.
The former manager and current MLB executive has to be proud of the grab his daughter, Cristina, made outside of a Brooklyn building, the New York Daily News is reporting.
Cristina Torre saw a baby hanging on a building outside a storefront. When the 1-year-old boy dropped, the former catcher's daughter reacted. Quickly.
Cristina caught the baby in her arms, the newspaper reported.
"The woman caught the baby," Kristen Bramsen, 48, told the News . "The baby was shaken. Everyone was going up to the woman and hugging her. I hugged her."
While Cristina Torre helped avert a tragedy, the ending wasn't as sweet for the baby's parents.
Sam Miller, 23, and Tiffany Demetria, 24 -- face charges that include endangering the welfare of a child and neglect, according to law enforcement sources.
At least Cristina was able to keep these charges from being more serious.
