This Gruesome Sight Is What Happens When You Try to Catch a Giancarlo Stanton HR with Your Bare Hands (Pic and Tweet)

Nope.

This sight is what happened to a fan at the Home Run Derby after he tried to snag a dinger from Giancarlo Stanton. It was posted by Twitter user Jordan Jacobson, but it’s not explicitly clear that it’s his hand in the photo.

It didn’t go well. I think. It’s hard to tell. I mean, his ring finger is grossly swollen (look at it next to his unscathed pinky), but then you look at his thumb, and it appears that it’s just weird-looking to begin with. Who knows.

Regardless, it’s a pretty remarkable image, and a good PSA that catching a foul ball or home run with your bare hands could be very, very dangerous. But is still better than bringing your glove to the field like a dork.

Here’s the Tweet that brought the pic to light:
