Edmundo Sosa is either insanely accurate, or a terrible thrower.
Either way, this umpire wishes he did not throw a baseball his way. On Monday evening, St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Edmundo Sosa attempted a spinning throw to first base to secure an out, but he was off by a lot.
In fact, Sosa’s throw struck the first base umpire Junior Valentine directly in the face, and left him a bloody mess.
Sosa’s mishap did not have any negative effects on the Cardinals. Veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright got his three outs and moved on.
