You just hate to see it.
Yankees infielder Chase Headley was hit by a pitch in the absolute worst place possible on Tuesday night.
The catastrophe happened in the bottom of the fifth inning against the Twins:
Headley was actually serving as the designated hitter in this game, so there's a pretty solid chance he wasn't wearing a cup. Come to think of it, the fact that he stayed in the game and didn't immediately roll over screaming bloody murder means he was indeed wearing a cup.
