Chicago White Sox fan catches flying bat one-handed

Usually great plays in baseball involve someone catching a ball, but in today’s Indians and White Sox game the play of the day was made on a bat.

When Tyler Flowers’ rogue bat flew into the stands, Eileen Depesa not only made an amazing one-handed catch, but she saved the baby seated behind her.

According to, Depesa doesn’t care that she had to give the bat back, as long as the kiddo is safe.

"I was more concerned with protecting the baby seated behind me."

Almost as great as the catch was the reaction by the woman next to her in the White Sox tank. She went from fear to ‘What you caught that!’ in seconds.

Hats off to Depesa on what could be FOX Sports Live’s ‘The One’.
