I mean, how could you not buy that?
Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart posted a photo on Twitter of the tiny catcher's mitt he purchased on Amazon for his three-month old son, Tatum.
Came across this on Amazon and couldn’t pass it up. What a great “first glove” for my son! @vincisports pic.twitter.com/lAKZd1rxKD— Tucker Barnhart (@Tucker_Barnhart) December 20, 2017

It's not the first time Tucker's son has featured prominently in really cute Twitter moments.
In February, Tucker and his wife, Sierra, revealed Tatum's gender on Twitter by hitting a balloon filled with either a blue or pink substance.

Late this summer, the Reds had a conundrum when the wives all three of the team's catchers were due to give birth at roughly the same time.
Here's to hoping that little catcher's mitt puts Tatum Barnhart on his way to following in his father's footsteps behind the plate for the Reds.
