In the second inning on Wednesday afternoon’s Game 5 between the Red Sox and Astros, Rafael Devers shattered his bat before it went flying into the stands.
Instead of ducking for cover like the other fans who were sitting near where the flying bat was headed, one fan braved up, and tried to make a play.
He was able to catch it cleanly, impressing everyone at Fenway Park along with the Fox broadcast.
