Wowzers. Seems every year there is at least two or three guys taking a heater to the dome in the majors. It is rare to see someone get hit in their actual face. Yesterday, Chris Ianetta took a 93 mph fastball to the grill. Ouch. Because he turned towards the pitcher, the ball completely misses his helmet and smokes him in the mouth. Ianetta is ok and he was able to do interviews after the game.
