Baltimore had Batman. Chicago had... a small boy.

In the top of the seventh inning of the Orioles' 5-2 win over the White Sox on Thursday, a young kid somehow bypassed security and ran onto the field. Sprinting across the outfield with a glove in hand, the boy ran in the direction of left fielder Dayan Viciedo, who lightly jogged along with him until he stopped the scamper by scooping the kid up.

Viciedo then walked over toward the foul line and handed the boy over to security.

"My first reaction was just to grab him," Viciedo told the Chicago-Tribune through an interpreter. "What I was thinking was that I hoped a ball doesn't hit him, so that is why I instinctively went to grab him."

The boy was returned to an adult and the two were ejected, per league rules.
