Cubs Catcher Welington Castillo Catches Ball With Groin (GIF)
Ladies and gentlemen, we have the first nut shot of the 2014 MLB season. The lucky recipient is Welington Castillo, catcher for the Chicago Cubs, who took a foul tip off the bat of the Pirates’ Pedro Alvarez right to the crotch.
Surprisingly, Castillo doesn’t seem particularly excited to be receiving this honor, instead standing straight up before hunching over in pain. And just to add insult to injury, the Cubs went on to lose the game to the Pirates, 1-0.
If you’re a glutton for punishment, you can watch Cubs catcher Welington Castillo getting hit in the nuts by a foul ball over and over again in the GIF below, courtesy of Twitter user Sam Thomas, who you can check out here.
