Over the weekend, two baseball videos went viral. On Saturday, Yankees first basemanLUKE VOITtook a 91-mile-per-hour fastball TO THE FACE. It clipped his shoulder, and then hit him in the chin and lower lip.
But incredibly, he stayed in the game and scored a run later in the inning as if nothing had happened. He was then taken out of the game as a precaution, but he did pass the concussion test. (Here'svideo, and here's the CRAZYclose-up.)
A scary moment in the bottom of the fourth, but take a deep breath Yankees fans. The Yankees have announced that Luke Voit was removed from today’s game for precautionary reasons and underwent concussion protocol testing. Those test results came back clear.
Luke Voit took a 92 mph fastball to the chin. Stayed in the game.
Also on Saturday, Rays relieverOLIVER DRAKEended the eighth inning with a strikeout, using one of the mostbizarrepitches you'll see. He threw the ball in one direction and it made a sharp turn to the other. (Here'svideo.)
