Duck! Mayor Daley's Close Call At The Cell

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Jul 29, 2010 2:35PM

From the Olympic bid to poll numbers, Mayor Daley has taken some hits the last few months but he dodge a big one last night at U.S. Cellular Field as he just avoided being hit by a bat accidentally flung into the stands by White Sox outfielder Andruw Jones. Jones lost control of his bat on a hefty swing in the fourth inning, sending the bat spinning into the first few rows where Hizzonah did his best duck and cover to avoid any damage. No one was injured by the bat but we await a report from Mick Dumke on whether or not Jones is part of an anti-Daley conspiracy. [video below via NBC 5]
