White Sox Fan Saves Baby From Flying Bat: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

When Chicago catcher Tyler Flowers lost his grip on his bat, it went flying into the stands above left field.

Depesa, of Naperville, Ill., reached out with one hand and caught the bat before it hit the infant seated behind her. The man seated to her right merely ducked."
