NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Director Spike Lee didn’t even bat an eye when Mark Teixeira lost his bat during the bottom of the first inning of Sunday’s game between the Bombers and the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium.

Lee said you could see Teixeira was concerned as soon as the bat slipped out of his hands and flew into the crowd, directly at the film maker and his son.

“The bat handle hit my son between his shoulder blades,” Lee posted on Twitter. “It didn’t hurt him.”

The crowd broke into cheers after Lee quickly picked up the bat from the cement.

“Yes, Spike Lee kept the bat…and I signed it for him later!” Teixeira posted on Twitter after the game.

Lee offered a tip to his Twitter fans saying, “When Bat Is Headed To You-Run/Duck.”
