You didn’t want to be Jordany Valdespin on Monday. A utility player for the New York Mets, Valdespin hit a home run off Detroit Tigers’ ace Justin Verlander to lead off the teams’ spring training game on Monday. Great day, right? Well, just wait.

Valdespin’s next at-bat, Verlander pitched inside and hit him in the groin with a 94 mph. fastball. Mets’ beat writer Mike Puma saw it happen live:



Valdespin was more succinct, and his ‘boys’ were wofully unprepared for the collision:



Puma also reported that Verlander was, uh, remorseful.

However, balls well that ends well for Valdespin:


Verlander is capable of throwing 100 mph, so Valdespin was lucky. Sort of. Let’s hope that — once he’s done with that ice pack on his crotch — he employs common sense next time he’s facing such a threat to his manhood. Oh, the Mets won the game 11-0, even though Valdespin most certainly lost by two.
