During baseball games anything can happen, from unexpected weather conditions to animals running the bases, to even funny/cringey moments between the fans and players. While most of these things are harmless, sometimes the unexpected can be dangerous. Well a hero stepped up when a sudden ‘dustando’ hit home-plate.
The video was posted on Twitter by JomBoy Media showing the shift action of an Umpire. Who leapt into danger and saved a Youth Baseball Player who was in the middle of a ferocious wind.

Great job by the umpire here pic.twitter.com/sT7dAPDVm9
Reports say the weather had be relatively fine up until the forth inning when the wind picked up. It was this quick action of this 7U youth baseball umpire that kept the boy from being harmed. While it may not be as scary as a actual tornado, they still pose a danger to those who get caught in one.
The ‘Dustnado’ was ejected from the game quickly following the incident and thankfully nobody was seriously injured. The game was taking place in Florida. While some on social media are making light of the incident, some are praising the umpire for a job well done.
