The Diamondbacks’ Martin Prado was going for a foul ball up the third base line Sunday night when his face unfortunately made contact with a fan’s face, resulting in pain. And multiple very amusing slow motion replays.
By the video, neither individual appears to be badly injured. The fan at one point looks like he might cry but he manages to hold back the tears, just barely.
Good news for him that he didn’t cry. His buddies never would’ve let him live it down if he had cried after being headbutted by Martin Prado. That crap would’ve haunted him for the rest of his life. Man code would have required him to be relentlessly mocked for the remainder of his time on earth.
From now on that fan will be buying seats higher up, where the only danger is from drunks puking on you, or hyperactive little kids kicking you in the shins. Or the stadium food.
Those seats down close to the field always seem like a great idea, until Martin Prado’s face smacks you in the forehead.
