Introducing Bat Catching, Red Stripe Drinking Mitch Davie – Early Nominee for 2011 Sports Fan of the Year

Earlier today, one of the most incredible action pics of a sports fan I’ve ever seen starting circulating through the Internet sportosphere. This post will quickly recognize Mitch Davie, the subject of said picture, and an early nominee for 2011 Sports Fan of the Year.

Basically, Davie was attending a Braves-Blue Jays Spring Training game in Kissimme, FL, sipping on a Red Stripe tall boy, when the sports gods presented him with an opportunity to go down in history as a gigantic badass. He rose to the occasion, proof below.

So a bat comes flying at Davie, and not only does he keep his Red Stripe steady, but he saves the terrified guys next to him from a certain bat-induced welt, all while his eyes are closed. Impressive. Badass.

Mitch Davie, you are the current leader in the clubhouse for 2011 Sports Fan of the Year.
