Photo Of The Year So Far: Fan Saves Kid From Being Nailed In The Snoot By Bat
Please folks, don't text and fan.
This kid at the Pirates-Braves game in Florida is texting his friends and have a great ol' time, which prevents him from seeing real life literally hurtling toward his face. Fortunately an adult sitting nearby extends his arm and deflects the bat, saving junior from possible facial surgery. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographer Christopher Horner shot these frames, as the Pirates' Danny Ortiz lost his grip on a swing, nearly hitting the fan.

“I didn't know what happened, if it hit the boy or anything ... I went home and my wife said to me, ‘You almost killed that kid!'" Ortiz said.
