While Godwin and the 6-month-old Todd were out for a hike, Godwin was nearly bit by a rattlesnake that she didn't see.

"He literally just darted right toward that snake by my leg and he took the bite for me," Godwin said while down on the field at Chase Field.

Todd had a swollen face as a result of the bite, but his picture and heroic act went viral.
