Carlos Zambrano Saves Himself From Flying Softball During Interview (VIDEO)

"Baseball instincts." That is what Carlos Zambrano said saved him from a flying softball during his interview with CSNChicago. Big Z, who threw out the first pitch at the Chicago Bandits professional softball game on Thursday night, heard the crack of the bat during his interview and immediately looked behind him to see where the ball was going. Once he realized the foul ball was coming his way, the Cubs pitcher ducked out of the way and started laughing. Scroll down to watch the video.
