White Sox fan makes one-handed bat catch to protect baby behind her (VIDEO)

After Tyler Flowers' bat slipped out of his hands on a swing Monday, fans took cover as the free-flying piece of lumber skipped off the top of the dugout and into the U.S. Cellular Field stands. 

Seated in the first row, Eileen Depesa didn't even flinch as she caught the incoming bat with one hand, and the crowd went wild.

The sure-handed woman said she didn't make the play for personal gain (she had to give the bat back) or glory: "I was more concerned with protecting the baby seated behind me."

As the thankful mom behind her visibly attests.

Just call her Batwoman.

    1. Yeah. Thinking the same thing, "you the man" now, huh?
