Juan Uribe Takes Mike Trout Ground Ball to the Nuts


During Sunday’s game between the Indians and Angels, Indians third baseman Juan Uribe took a Mike Trout ground ball with an exit velocity of 106 mph right to the dick.

Poor Juan Uribe. This is a case of just terrible luck. They call this the hot corner for a reason. At any moment you’re susceptible to a ground ball taking an unexplained hop and head right for your jewels.

As an infielder, this is something that is always in the back of your head. What are the chances of this ball taking a bad hop? And if it does, what are the chances it gets me right in the balls? In Juan’s case, he wasn’t too lucky.

Here’s a closer view of this tragedy

Even though wearing a cup is uncomfortable and inconvenient, it could save something like this from happening to you. If he was wearing a cup, it would’ve caused him A LOT less pain.

Obviously, Uribe did not stay in the game. He probably went straight to the clubhouse bathroom to see if his junk still worked.

Moral of the story: If you’re an infielder, wear a cup. Especially playing the hot corner, where balls are hit over 100mph very often, it’s just not worth it.
