Awesome Baseball Fan

by Admin

On Monday, a baseball fan named Mitch Davie made quite possibly the greatest fan play of 2011. At a spring training game between the Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays, Davie was casually drinking a Red Stripe (a Jamaican beer, one of the best I’ve ever tasted BTW), when a bat came flying at him. Without dropping his beer, he grabbed the bat with one hand, saving the man next to him from potential harm.

Midwest Sports Fans caught wind of the pic/legend and promptly named him “2011 Sports Fan of the Year“. I can’t say I disagree.
