Baseball Hall of Famer’s Son Part of Heroic Story From Las Vegas Tragedy

Tragedy struck Las Vegas Sunday night, as at least 58 people were killed and more than 500 were injured, as a crazed gunman turned a country music concert into the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

For many, the moment you hear a gunshot, you immediately flea the scene, which is obviously a normal bodily instinct.

But for others, including Todd Blyleven, former minor league pitcher and son of Hall of Fame pitcher Burt Blyleven, they ignore their human impulse to run away and instead stay and help others.

 

 

Once Blyleven and his brother-in-law were able to get their group out of the venue, he went back in with a group of volunteers and started trying their best to get people out of harm’s way.

“The shooting just seemed like it went on for 10 or 15 minutes,” said Blylevenand not for a moment did he decide he’d done enough in the relief efforts.
