Watch Out! Wild Throw Hits Umpire Square In The Face

Ra's al Ghul (Batman Begins, 2005) said it best, "You never learned to mind your surroundings!" That message was clearly meant for this umpire at first base.

Midway through Cardinals Mets last night, Kevin Pillar hit a routine ground ball to second. The scoop of the ball by Shortstop Edmundo Sosa, clean. The throw, not so much.

Here's a slow motion replay.

The umpire's name is Junior Valentine and he was indeed okay and stayed in the game. Played it off like a champ. Stay safe out there Junior.
