get off the phone kid
Lol that what I said
Yeah take the kid’s fucking phone and make him watch the game.
Was gonna say this. Should have let hit hit him. Also, maybe that guy is just trying to catch the bat as a souvenirs 😂
Nah, kids are stupid. That's why, as adults, we have a moral responsibility to protect them.
Letting them swim and get hurt is also very helpful and we have a whole generation of whiny narcissists goofed up in mind altering pills and developing significant levels of misery and mental illness.
There is a happy medium somewhere.
The medium is not letting a kid get hit in the face with a bat
Ah yes, and people call me crazy for not liking how this society has morphed into zero social accountability whatsoever because sociopaths and predators like it that way.
Yeah... You don't want a child getting hit in the head with a bat.
Hence the term happy medium
All things in moderation...........bat to face not moderate , except to pedophiles.
Feeling pain/consequences and getting hurt are different. A shattered maxillary bone isn’t necessary for a kid to learn a lesson.
Only to a point though. Kids actually need to get hurt, and definitely need to be on their on a lot more than they are now. In other words, be in positions where they AREN'T protected.
When I was in school, there was always some kid with a cast on their arm or leg. When was the last time you saw that?
Part of parenting is balancing the protection of your child with allowing your child to learn on their own. The balance shifts as the kid gets older.
You didn't opt for the lolerskates?
Damn that ratio looks like it hurts
You're a bitch.
I'll take it as seen without the commentary.
Chad move on the guy's part. Just what a man does.
The "commentary" is necessary, we are living in a society that doesn't show any respect to its men, the fact that you have a problem with praising masculinity proves that to me at least,literally all he said in his "commentary"(it's just a post title) is to praise, it's purely positive
You either didn't read my comment all the way through or you misunderstood it. (The second and third sentences are clues.)
The "commentary", to which I was referring, was regarding the 12 or so other posts in the thread (when I posted mine) that were casting aspersions on his action.
I think most everyone else got that.
I assumed you were talking about the OP, that's my bad
So you added your own commentary, saying the same thing as the original commentary…
Chad Dad always protects his own.
Great picture. One man saving two ladies and a kiddo, well done. My favorite is the main behind them putting up his hand but hanging onto his drink.
I love baseball. Both of my brothers were pitchers so I like to sit behind home plate. The last pro game my brother and I attended before he passed the usher kept telling us to watch every at bat, we were right on the edge of the netting. Sure enough, a foul ball bounced off an upper deck and my brother extended his arm and caught it midair. He had not played baseball in 40 years but still had great anticipation. This man (pictured) knows what he’s doing—perfect block—and thank goodness he’s there.
Yeah, I like how his arm is not only extended in front of the child's face. but braced. He knew it was going to be a powerful impact. A friend of mine from a few years back was a player, his two brothers were also ball players and his dad was a famous pitcher. They were awesome people.
If I were him, I might have that picture blown up and framed in my entryway
That kids like WTF? I almost had that Pokémon
pain is temporary
shame is lasting
Awesome. Then take the kid's phone away.
Plot twist: he wasn't actually trying to protect the kid. He was reaching for the hot dog he just bought from the wandering vendor, when the bat flew in.
The kid wasn’t even paying attention to the game because he was playing with his fucking toy. There was a chance for this kid to learn a valuable life lesson and they blew it
Was the life lesson "just watch sportsball with your eyes glued to the game and the woke agendas they keep pushing"?
I'd be on my phone too, especially if I didn't want to go but was dragged along.
Sportsball is stupid, and people who support it while criticizing other people for supporting something else are also stupid.
Never go someplace you don’t want to go. Rule of life. I have no use for ball games.
Whatever dude. We're celebrating masculinity here. Men who protect the vulnerable, with no thought of what it might cost them.
Last time my friend took his nephew to a baseball game, the kid learned about quadratic equations on his phone.
Why did he have to go to the basketball game to learn that???
Baseball, and where but throwing sports do people concentrate on parabolas?
Kids going places
Was sending a photo to his mother if I remember the story correctly
For some reason this reminds me of a story...
My HS freshman year, Baseball, Spring training, I'm at 2nd and Coach smacks a line drive fungo at me, as it happened the Sun was going down and directly behind him, I couldn't see the damn thing, stuck my glove out in front of my face in literally blind hope, but it still caught me left side mouth and dropped right at my feet. I bent down and threw it home no hesitation, then spat a shit ton of blood and felt two uppers were loose.
About 5 minutes later Coach calls me over to give me some gear, says "what happened to you?" I told him, and he said " well, next time use your glove..."🙄,
My teeth tightened up, after a few days, but I wore baseball stitches on my face for almost two weeks, perfect little bruise imprint of the stitching. Coach must have been impressed though cuz' he pulled me up to Varsity. Go figure...🐸🇺🇲
My dad and grandpa used to do the same for me when I was younger... If they ever had to slam on the brakes or make sudden movements, I was 100% certain I was safe with the forearm seatbelt
I don't have kids yet, but I find myself doing the same for other people sometimes--men are protectors
Get off the phone, kid, and watch the game
...who is dead to the world on a phone. Gaming addiction is real and starts at an early age. Parents give the kid a phone "just to keep them quite" and it works like a sedative. It works the same way throughout their teenage years and into their 20s. A sedative from the responsibilities of life.
It's a problem a lot of families have to deal with. If you are one of them, you are not alone.
I love masculism.
About to get a cool souvenir
YAS. Hero Hematoma!
Love this picture
This is why dads are needed. They protect their kids.
Contrast with the one where it looks like the soyboy is shoving the kid in front of himself for protection.
Has anyone heard Bongino’s spiel about how the Secret Service trains agents to “get big” in dangerous situations? I think this is a perfect example in a photo. Everyone who sees the bat flying is ducking for cover and instinctively making themselves as small a target as possible. This is your self preservation instinct. Hell, you can’t even see the lady in the front row, just her elbow and hand. But the one guy, the hero, he “got big” and got in the way of the dangerous thing in order to protect someone else. Apparently it’s very difficult to train people out of their instinct and have them “get big” and jump in front of danger, and a lot of agents can never override this instinct.
I've never heard Bongino's take on it, but it make sense. Self-preservation is probably the most basic instinct.
Stop giving kids phones, they dont need them
An also story, Wife and I went to a down town celebration. It was summer and the bees and wasps were out in force. Anyway, the garbage cans were overflowing with syrupy sweet drinks and cotton candy. My son was five and loving the celebration. He was plying a basketball type game and the garbage can was near by. When the ball hit the garbage can he was covered in wasps. As a father I was thinking, shoot this is going to hurt. The crowds just stood back and watched. I physically slowly and very nervously picked the wasps off of him. Praying my son did not get stung. Let me tell you it was very hard waiting for the wasps to attack. Well we got them all off, whew, I was very happy my guardian angel was with us. We decided we had enough fun for the day.
Kids was getting his dopamine fix , had no idea a Racist Black bat was coming for his face.
Everybody's riding on the Kid being on phone...but he was placing bet on the game in FanDuel. Made his dad $250. 😁 /s
Fat pigs protecting themselves ahahahahaha fucking hog trash…
Everyone bitching about the kid being on his phone and ignoring the cunt in front of him saving herself before a child.
depends on how much time you have to assess the situation. i cant even tell where she is. where was she sitting? was she where the guy is right now? why would you duck forward into the bat? i feel like its hard to judge without all of the context that a still image is missing.
This isn't some Hillary village you look after your own child.
kid is a moron
Yep. Kids are oblivious. That's why as adults, we have a moral obligation to protect them.
kid is a moron
Kids are morons, it is known.
they learn by nearly suiciding themselves daily
That's why adults try to protect them.
kid needs to learn
Beeferson, you are a moron. I sincerely hope you never have kids.
I upvoted this pede even though he said it wrong. "Kids are morons" is the proper verbiage.
