Random Act Of Sport: Ball Girl Saves A Fan From A Foul Ball To The Face

The fans showed their gratitude with a hearty ovation for her work

With the Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez at the plate yesterday, Dodgers’ ball girl No. 89 stood ready, having been burned by one of his foul balls on a previous pitch.

As Baez ripped a shot down the line, No. 89 leapt up to save a fan in row one a trip to the ER. Though the fan looked ready, it’s clear from these vantage points that he wasn’t prepared for the velocity of this ball. Luckily, ball girl No. 89 was, and Dodgers’ fans gave her a hearty ovation.
