Dad saves son from being hit in the face with a baseball bat

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WNCN) – A father’s fast reflexes saved his son from being hit in the face with a baseball bat.

On Saturday, a baseball bat slipped through the hands of Pittsburgh Pirates’ Danny Ortiz during the Atlanta Braves spring training game, WTSP reported.

Shaun Cunningham and his 8-year-old son were at the game. The bat was headed straight for Cunningham’s head when his father put out his arm and blocked Landon from getting hit in the face.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographer Christopher Horner captured the moment with his camera and the photo has gone viral.
