Chick-fil-A worker Thomas Mykel Gordon throws out the first pitch at the Pensacola Blue Wahoos game


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

Fort Walton Beach native Thomas Mykel Gordon threw out the first pitch Thursday for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos ahead of Game 2 of the team’s playoff series against the Montgomery Biscuits.

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

According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, the woman was pulling a baby out of her car when a man approached her with a stick and demanded her keys.

He then took the keys from his belt, opened the car door and entered.

Gordon’s heroic actions led to the man’s immediate arrest, who was charged with assault and battery and carjacking with a weapon.
