Father Saves his Boy at Baseball Game when Bat goes Flying into Stands.
8-year-old Landon was excited to watch his favorite team play and was snapping pictures when the errant bat flew towards the stands.
The duo was sitting three rows behind the Braves dugout. When the baseball bat slipped out of a player’s hand, he had only seconds to spare.
His split second move has since gone viral. The bat was heading straight for Landon’s face, but Shaun’s arm blocked it.
But what is most stunning: Notice how other spectators are jumping out of the projectile’s way while Landon’s dad is moving towards it. It’s a stunning picture of what fatherhood is about. And the beautiful moment of fatherly protection has been warming hearts all over the internet.
“I have a great dad!” Landon exclaimed. “My dad’s a hero!”
