Tamron Hall, Willie Geist and Al Roker discuss how hero dad Shaun Cunningham shielded his son Landon from a flying baseball bat at a spring training game. Joining TODAY live via FaceTime, Shaun says “I just did anything I could do to block it and deflect it,” and Landon reveals he was looking at his phone because he had just taken a picture of a player and was about to send it to his mom. Landon, who’ll receive a jersey autographed by the Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman, says, “My first baseball game was amazing.”
