A Florida Chick-fil-A employee credited with saving a woman from what would have been a carjacking earlier this month was recognized for his good deed by a Minor League Baseball team Thursday.

Mykel Gordon, a Fort Walton Beach native, threw out the first pitch Thursday for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos before game two of the team’s playoff series against the Montgomery Biscuits.

The Chick-fil-A employee was working inside the restaurant’s Fort Walton Beach location last Wednesday when he heard a woman yelling for help outside.
