Never trust a man who doesn’t wear batting gloves.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at the home run Houston Astros catcher Evan Gattis hit Wednesday and you’ll understand why.

After Gattis’ top hand slipped off the bat mid-swing, he somehow managed to complete his smooth stroke and launch a pitch from Texas Rangers reliever Andrew Faulkner into the stratosphere.

See? Definitely some voodoo magic going on there.

Or, as NESN’s Gary Striewski would say, that’s why you don’t skip arm day: You can’t hit ding dongs with your legs.

Texas defeated Houston 14-3.
