Batman: Spurs’ Ginobili steals game with bat catchHere's a clip of the half-amazing, half-disgusting play.
SAN ANTONIO (AP)—The Spurs’ Manu Ginobili showed off his quick hands—capturing a bat.
“That was amazing,” teammate Tony Parker said after the San Antonio Spurs beat the Sacramento Kings 113-94 on Saturday night. “The legend continues with Manu. Unbelievable. … He’s always doing crazy stuff.”
Late in the first period a bat swooped into the AT&T Center and descended onto the court. Players scattered and officials stopped play. The bat circled and left only to return—briefly.
That’s when Ginobili performed his Halloween trick, swatting the bat out of the air with a bare hand. He then carried the creature off the court to thunderous cheers.

No Ifs, Ands, Or Bats
I never liked Manu Ginobili—he plays for an L.A. Lakers conference rival, flops too much—but his stunt on Halloween night? Kinda cool.
