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.

My boy Michael is right. That kid is adorable! I’m glad this incident didn’t keep him from continuing to enjoy his favorite sport.
