    This Kid Almost Got Hit In The Face With A Baseball Bat

    THIS. KID. IS. LUCKY.

    Pay close attention, baseball fans. These pictures are all the evidence you'll need to NEVER use your phone at a game again.

    @BiertempfelTrib The two frames showing just how close the bat was to the boy's head.

    Photographer Christopher Horner snapped these incredible pics at a spring training game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Atlanta Braves in Florida on Saturday.

    Just look how the hero in the sunglasses bravely deflects the flying bat as it makes it way toward the oblivious kid. WE ARE NOT WORTHY OF YOUR REFLEXES, SIR.

    So, remember...

    NEVER...

    USE...

    YOUR PHONE...

    AT BASEBALL GAMES.

    BYE.
