Royals' Nori Aoki takes baseball to the groin, makes greatest face ever (GIF)

Nori Aoki’s heroic effort to catch this pop foul results in the baseball striking him in an area that is not the place you want to get hit if you are a man. In case you had any doubt about the horrific pain that comes with such an incident, just look at Aoki’s face. It will tell you everything you need to know about the experience of being struck in the junk.


All the pain and suffering of humanity is contained in Aoki’s visage at that moment. You feel like you are being transported to the very depths of agony.

Of course he shook it off quickly because thankfully that pain only lasts a short while. GIFs, unlike groin pain, live forever.

I don’t honestly know why anyone would want to watch that particular moment over and over, on a perpetual GIF loop, but to each his own. There are some people who get off on the agony of others. Clearly, they have never taken a baseball or any other hard spherical object to the groin, otherwise they would have more sympathy.
