TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Pitchers should be required to wear a helmet. This sh*t is funny until the day someone does not get up from a hit to their dome.
Yeah, after what happened to Brandon McCarthy, I refrain from laughing at this. Now, having a fly ball bounce off Jose Canseco's head and over the fence for a home run was funny . . .
Same thing that happened to Brandon McCarthy.
Ooooh, that's gotta hurt.He's lucky. I'm thinking he'll feel that tonight after the adrenaline wears off. The ball went into centerfield from there. Hope he's ok. Concussion, maybe?
for some reason i kept thinking about the horror of a pitcher being hit in the head by a batted ball. this went on for 2 or 3 days before i went to the Brandon McCarthy game. i can still hear the crack of the bat and hear the crack of Brandon's skull... helmets please!
Remember Tony Conigliaro? His hit was a career ender but he did a stint at KGO TV and was well received by local fans.
to 9:23 and 12:43 - yes, let's take infrequent situations and make legislation to "protect" everyone. Isn't that what this country's lawmakers (lawyers) do best.
@8:48 I knew some big Libertarian type would pipe in. By your rationale football players should still use leather helmets and hockey players should be able to play without a helmet. Pitchers getting hit by line drives is not so infrequent as you think.
