A Flying Bat
If it weren’t photographed, nobody would believe the retelling of this story. While out with his son watching a baseball match (people still do this?), the force of the batter’s hard swing caused him to lose his grip on the bat/death weapon. With the bat heading toward the stands at full speed, nobody could have guessed what would happen next.
Luckily, this dad holds a Ph.D. in super-fast-father-reflexology. By sticking his arm out, he stopped the 2-pound wooden projective from hitting his kid’s face with the force of a thousand exploding suns. If there’s an award for fathers, this dad deserves a million of them.
