Joe Torre's daughter catches baby

NEW YORK -- The daughter of former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre is getting props from her dad for catching a baby boy who had tumbled off a second-floor fire escape in Brooklyn.
Torre said in a statement Wednesday that he was "very proud of my daughter Cristina's actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child."
Torre is now Major League Baseball's executive vice president of baseball operations.
"I didn't really know what was going to happen. ... You just move into action -- you don't really think about it," Cristina Torre told the Daily News of New York.
She was having coffee at a cupcake shop when bystanders saw the 1-year-old dangling from an awning of a frozen yogurt store next door.
"I'm talking to him saying, 'Don't come down, stay there,'" she said. "He helped himself with his arms. He was dangling. I knew he would be flipping very soon."
She said the child "literally landed in my arms." Torre credited her father for her "good hand-eye coordination."
According to police, the child somehow climbed onto the fire escape. He was in stable condition.
The parents were arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm only posting this to say this stupid joke:

Imagine what would happen if Buckner's daughter failed to catch a falling baby in Boston?

Balls hit between the legs are difficult for Billy B., but falling babies he's a Hall of Famer...
