Miguel Cabrera Takes A Ball To The Face (Video)

miguel cabrera ball to faceThose of us who were waiting to see how the Miguel CabreraPrince Fielder combo works out for the Detroit Tigers during the 2012 MLB regular season may have to wait a little longer after Cabrera took a ball to the face during today’s pre-season game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

During the first inning, Cabrera was fooled by a bad bounce on a Hunter Pence ground ball.  The result was a bloody face and a trip to the hospital for the third baseman, where he would undergo precautionary x-rays to see if there is any structural damage around his right eye.

I guess this makes that misplayed grounder by the Hooters ball girl later on in the game a lot less embarrassing.

Check it out.
