Spring Training Fan Saves Kid from Flying Bat: A fan watching a Pittsburgh Pirates/Atlanta Braves spring training game at Disney World made an incredible save, blocking a bat flying into the stands as it was heading towards a young boy's head. Christopher Horner of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review captured the incident in a series of photos. Pirates outfielder Danny Ortiz, who lost his grip on the bat, had no idea this happened. He said, "I went home and my wife said to me, 'You almost killed that kid!'"
