Mets bat

The typical reaction of a human being when a batter loses his grip on his bat and it goes flying out of control is to either duck or run away from the incoming projectile. But infield prospect Luis Guillorme of the New York Mets? When a bat is flying at his face, he stares it down in the face of danger and snags it with one hand like a Jedi master.

Guillorme has no fear. Guillorme will not be deterred. You come at Guillorme, you better bring something more dangerous than a flying bat, because he is having none of it.

If that’s not big league material, what is?

The reactions on Twitter do a good job of capturing our reaction to this spring training web gem.

But don’t think we missed those who decided to look for cover.
