CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The top trending White Sox story Tuesday night had nothing to do with home runs or strikeouts. It's the fan who made the catch of the day behind the Sox dugout.

A baseball bat went flying into the crowd, and everyone ducked except Eileen Depesa. She reached up and made the one-handed grab.

The Sox announcers had some fun with Depesa's boyfriend. However, upon closer look, Depesa may have stopped the bat from flying into a young kid in the second row.

Some are calling her a hero.
