This Kid Was Milliseconds Away From Receiving a Loose Baseball Bat To The Face

When one hears the term “pop fly” at a baseball game, it’s typically in reference to a loose ball flying into the stands… but a loose bat? Those don’t get thrown around too often.

But that’s what happened during a recent Pittsburgh Pirates game. When one of the Pirates lost control of his bat, it went flying into the stands, straight toward a young fan. Luckily, Dad was there to bunt it away.
