Fans in Chicago can catch a flying bat with one hand

White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers lost the grip on his bat while swinging through a pitch yesterday and it went flying into the stands, at which point a fan in Chicago effortlessly caught it on a bounce with one hand like it was no big deal:

My favorite part is the reaction by the woman holding the Miller Lite.

    Oh you meant a baseball bat. When I saw the headline, I first thought of the flying critters.

      Yeah, with Craig we never know if he means a bat or a Batman. (Same goes for me, though.)

        I see Craig has hijacked Gleeman’s account again at HBT.

        Yeah, didn’t notice it was an Aaron post, since it sure feels Craigy.

    and the dude that was next to her, ducking I might add, took the bat away.

    and the dude next to her tries to take it away from her, to hide his shame.

    Saving people from flying objects and saving babies. Superwoman stuff there.
