There is no amount of training that can prepare a guy for a 90 mph fastball directly to the face.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward found that out the hard way a few minutes ago when a Jonathan Niese pitch sailed a little too up and a little too in.
Heyward was on the ground for a bit and was bleeding from the mouth, but was able to walk off under his own power.
Baseball players: they’re really not paid enough, are they?
