When Yadier Molina strapped on his equipment before his matchup with the Cubs, he could not have envisioned the way this game would play out for him.
In the top of the 9th inning, Kris Bryant looks at a full count with no runners on base. The Cardinals wouldn’t be the only ones down two, as Jordan Hicks’s 102mph sinker gets fouled off into the Molina family jewels.
The poor guy was one inning away from escaping a fate worse than death, but destiny had different plans. Aired live on T.V. countless men felt it in their stomach as they watched in horror and relive painful memories of unfortunate blows below the belt.
If you wish to torture yourself, here's video of Molina’s eggs being scrambled and trust me, it doesn’t go over easy.
Here’s to wishing Molina a swift recovery. At 35, with kids at home this injury actually could have been worse. At least Molina can rehab at home with his family, instead of worrying that he could never have one.
