Braves fan miraculously saves kid from getting hit with flying bat

New, comments

Photo finishes are typically exclusive to the racing world, but spring training had its version on Sunday when a bat was inadvertently launched towards a young fan.

Luckily while everyone else was cowering in fear of the airborne bat, the adult to the next of the kid reached his arm in front of the kid's face just before it was able to touch him.

What a close call!
