Getting hit with a fastball is going to sting no matter where it gets you, but Chase Headley took it in one of the worst possible places Tuesday night.
The New York Yankees infielder came to the plate against Minnesota Twins right-hander Dillon Gee in the fifth inning at Yankee Stadium.
Gee tossed an 88-mph cutter that tailed inside and got Headley right where it hurts.
Take a look.
Here’s another look.
Headley, somehow, stayed in the game and came around to score a run in a crucial game for both the Yankees and Twins.
We’re just glad Headley was able to walk it off.
