Saving the Beer - Reaction Time

There's something about this photo that keeps drawing me back to look again. Look at everything going on here, especially the recoil reaction of the crowd. Now look at the guy at the center right. That's a one-handed grab of the bat, and he doesn't spill his beer! Granted this is a split-second view of the action, but it sure is impressive.

See "Sign him up! Fan catches bat, saves beer" at the Seattle Times photographers' blog for the complete story behind the photo.

  1. it would be more impressive if he wasn't drinking out of a can.

    A friend of mine put his leg through a malting house floor whilst carrying a half litre glass of beer and didn't spill a drop.
