A Mother's instinct never fails!

On Monday, Tyler Flowers of the Chicago White Sox, lost his grip during a swing and the bat went flying into the stands...towards a BABY!

Luckily, a woman sitting in front of the sweet bambino reached up and caught the bat - with ONE hand!

Athletic or not, this woman is a hero! Oh - and she did get to keep the bat that was later signed.

That's what you call a lucky fan!
