During Tuesday night’s Athletics-Angels game, the big story of the night was Yoenis Cespedes’ unreal throw to gun out Howie Kendrick at the plate in the eighth inning. However, in the second inning of the game, something a little more relevant to us here at AA happened.
Derek Norris fouled a ball back behind the plate, and Angels color commentator Mark Gubicza cowered in terror, despite being a former ballplayer himself. Check this out.
Oh, Gubi – not a good look. But hey, given what happened to MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon in Cincinnati, maybe that’s the right reaction. Sheldon had an expensive laptop smashed by a Pablo Sandoval foul ball, and Gubicza would be damned if the same thing happened to him.
