Pablo Sandoval’s Belt Explodes During At-Bat vs. Jays (Video)
Pablo Sandoval is making his first start of the season today during the Red Sox’s road game against the Toronto Blue Jays. And it couldn’t have started any worse for the portly third baseman.

It obviously couldn’t handle the pressure any longer. Check it out:

Sandoval would strike out on the very next pitch. And he committed a throwing error during the bottom half of the inning.
