Los Angeles Dodgers Bat Boy Saves The Day And Shohei Ohtani

Los Angeles Dodgers bat boy Javier Herrera might have saved Shohei Ohtani’s season.

Herrera was standing on the dugout steps during the team’s game against the Chicago White Sox when a vicious line drive came screaming into the dugout. Check out the video below.

Ohtani was directly in back of Herrera, and would have been hit in the face.

But Herrera nonchalantly caught the screaming liner, saving Ohtani, who can be seen ducking down quickly.

The bat boy then handed the ball to a fan seated right by him, his face betraying little emotion.

Ohtani, realizing what happened, is shown about to thank Herrera before the video cuts off.

Ohtani hit his 25th home run of the season in a 1-for-2 performance with two walks and two runs scored, helping the Dodgers to a 4-0 victory over the White Sox.
