Hero Saves Kid Staring at Phone During Baseball Game From Getting Smashed in Face by Bat

Above: A fan at a Pittsburgh Pirates–Atlanta Braves spring training game in Florida on Saturday saves a kid from getting hit in the head by a bat that had slipped out of Pirates outfielder Danny Ortiz’s hands and flown into seats near the first-base line.

It doesn’t appear that any reporters were able to track down the heroic man to determine his relationship to the youngster, who hopefully learned a valuable lesson about not staring at his dang phone all the time.
