The Fairfield Stags’ college baseball team had their home finale on Tuesday against UMass. That also meant the final home game for the Stags’ seniors, and of those seniors is first baseman Drew Blake.

In the bottom of the sixth, Blake crushed a two-run homer all the way to a parking lot well beyond the right-center field wall at Alumni Baseball Diamond.

The ball landed right in the arms of the one fan standing in the parking lot. That fan is Blake’s dad.

Blake shared video of the dinger on Instagram with the caption reading, “One last game of catch at home with my dad.”

That’s pretty dang cool.

It was also a very important two-run shot to the tie the game, and Fairfield would go on to win 8-4.
