Meet hero dad and the (adorable) son he saved from flying baseball bat


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.”
