I’ve suffered my fair share of nasty injuries during my time here at State. Ironically, none of them have happened on the intramural fields. The worst one happened when I fell through the drive thru menu at Taco Bell trying to surf my boy Nicky C’s Nissan Altima. My right hand was so messed up that it kept me out of the gym for three whole days. Those days were some of the darkest days of my young life.

Tuesday night, a fan at the Home Run Derby made the bold decision to try and catch Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton’s home run. For those unfamiliar with Stanton’s uncanny ability to absolutely smash the ball, here’s an example:

From GameDayR:

Jordan Jacobson, a fan taking in the Home Run Derby on Monday night, learned the hard lesson of snagging a Stanton scorcher. He showed off his bruised hand on Twitter after attempting the catch. Yes, you read that correctly, he didn’t even get the ball.

Here’s Jordan Jacobson’s hand after the fact:

Really ballsy of you, Jordan. I admire you for being a true man and not bringing a glove to the ballpark. I’ll give you a pass for not hanging onto the ball since it was Stanton, but it would have made carrying around those mangled digits worth it. Better luck next time, boss.
