St. Louis, MO (KMOV)-- Note to self: Look up from phone every now and then during the baseball game.
You know the old saying, it's all fun and games until somebody (fill in the blank.) For this little fan, it would have all been fun and games until somebody gets hit with a breakaway bat. The super close call happened at a Pirates vs. Braves game.
Fortunately for him, the guy next to him had superman-like reflexes. No confirmation on who he is, but his parental instincts are on point.
The saving arm block deserves a lot of credit as the injury from the flying bat could have been extremely serious. In the past, there have been multiple injuries due to foul balls and out of control bats.
