Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was hit in the Garys by a foul tip in the sixth inning of the AL Wild Card game. As a catcher, you have to think Sanchez was wearing a cup (he'd be insane not to), but the sheer force from the ball hitting the cup propelled the cup into...yeah, I'll stop. Here's a video:

The reactions to the incident were absolutely hilarious. Here's Sanchez, in sheer despair.

David Robertson, who was on the mound, immediately saw what happened and he reacted just like we all react when this happens to our friends. 

The following morning, Sanchez was able to laugh it off. 

That's empathy, man. Robertson feels for his boy. Teamwork makes the dream work.
