Wild Weekend For Major League Baseball

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.)
