Orioles Place Catcher Caleb Joseph on 15-Day DL with Busted Nuts (GIF)
Warning: what you are about to see may make you cry. And not in a good way, like the end of Rudy.
On Monday, an eighth inning pitch from the Baltimore Orioles’ Ashur Tolliver glanced off the bat of Boston Red Sox infielder Travis Shaw, took an 80º turn south, and hit Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph right in the goddamn testicles.
Take a look at the GIF of the incident if you think you can handle it:
Amazingly, after a visit from the trainers, Joseph stayed in and played the last two innings. However, after the game he was taken to the hospital to have his junk checked out by a urologist, and he wound up performing some minor surgery. Now the Orioles have placed Joseph on the 15-day disabled list with what might be the first known case of broken nuts.

What a tragedy. No man should have to outlive his balls.
