Well, that didn’t take long.
During the Houston Astros spring game against the Detroit Tigers — Jose Altuve became the most notable player on the team to be hit by a pitch, something opposing fans are calling for to happen all season long.
It happened on his 3rd at-bat against Tigers reliever Nick Ramirez.
For the game, Altuve went 1-for-2 , K, 2B, and, of course, got hit by a pitch.

The Astros would go on to defeat the Tigers by 10 runs.
