Baseball games can be dangerous places it seems and you need to have your wits about you - even if the game is crap.

At a recent training game in Florida between The Pirates and The Braves, a player lets a baseball bat slip when swinging a little too hard. A kid in the crowd wasn't paying attention, but luckily the guy next to him was and managed to get his hand out just in time.



The pictures were captured by Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographer Christopher Horner, while the young man and his father (?) are yet to be identified.

What a shot, though. And we hope that dude's arm is OK - give the man a free season ticket or something.
