Cliff Lee Experiences Embarrassing Moment, Falling On the Ground After Checking His Swing (Video)

The 2012 season has been an anomaly for Cliff Lee. Usually one of the league’s best pitchers, the Phillies ace didn’t notch his first win of the season until July 4 despite delivering his share of quality performances.

On Thursday, he experienced another strange occurrence, but this time it took place at the plate. During an at-bat against Brewers pitcher Jose Veras, Lee managed to check his swing, but suddenly fell on the ground in the process.

As lackluster as the sequence was for the 33-year-old, don’t doubt his hitting skills. Last season, Lee launched two home runs and seven RBIs, an impressive feat for a pitcher.

This season, he has collected nine hits and two RBIs. But that said, Thursday’s moment likely appears to be one of his most embarrassing moments in his 11-year career in the majors
