  • 0

Albert Gator is enjoying Internet fame, after protecting a young fan from a foul ball and instead taking the brunt of the bounce.

It happened Tuesday during a Florida vs. North Florida softball game.

Albert the Gator was hanging out with a young fan when the pop up foul ball was hit. Albert went to cover the young child's head when the ball landed right between Albert's eyes.

The child did attempt his version of 'Gator Aid', as you can see in the video, and luckily both Albert and the boy are fine now. Albert even has a sense of humor about the whole ordeal.
