Video: Fan At U.S. Cellular Field Gets Knockeddafuggout By Wicked Liner

Yet another example of why one should always keep their head on a swivel when sitting down the baselines at a baseball game. This poor fan attending the White Sox-Yankees game on Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago got absolutely drilled by a foul ball lined into the stands about the first base dugout during the 7th inning of the Yankees’ 2-1 victory. He required medical attention and was escorted from his seat by stadium personnel.

The video isn’t the greatest and it is difficult to see the actual impact, but it is certainly clear the guy was knocked out cold by the ball. I especially like the guy sitting next to him who believes that by immediately applying more pressure to the point of impact with his hand will somehow help the situation. Too bad he didn’t have a sharp stick to jab into the guy’s temple. Nice move, Trapper John, M.D. At the same time, I have no idea how I would have reacted if I were placed in a similar situation other than soiling myself after experiencing such a close call. My stunning good looks are my livelihood, people.
