Travis, second baseman of the Blue Jays, lost control of his bat when swinging to a Boston relief pitcher Steven Wright

The bat surpassed the height of the protection net and landed about 15 rows from the field level, at the middle third base and at home. The security of Fenway Park used towels and a stretcher to help the hobbyist.

The man received a loud ovation from the crowd as he stood up and while he held a towel on his head with his right hand, raised his left fist to thank the applause as he walked to the stretcher and sat down to get out of the state.
