This is a tough break for the beefy gentleman who had great seats to yesterday’s Chicago White Sox game. When Tyler Flowers accidentally sent his bat flying toward the stands, he ducked in fear. His companion did not.
Eileen Depesa kept her cool and casually corralled the sailing lumber with one hand.
The grab was made even more clutch by the presence of a sleeping baby one row back. Just like in the cartoons.
She was forced to return the bat because Major League Baseball is hard up for money and equipment, but she’ll always have the memories.
