Derek Jeter bunts a ball into a fan's face (GIF)

This Yankees fan sitting behind the third base dugout has a memory he can share with his family and friends for all times. He got hit in the face by a Derek Jeter bunt.

Note how quickly the fan recovers from the shock of the ball hitting him in the face. He goes from “Ouch a ball just hit me in the face” to “Holy crap a Derek Jeter foul ball hit me in the face and is rolling around somewhere nearby” in about half a second.

I don’t know if the fan ended up getting the ball, but I hope he did. If you get hit in the face you deserve to get the ball. At the very least.

Hopefully Jeter will also personally apologize to that fan. Actually, Jeter should personally apologize to all baseball fans after that bunt. That is without question one of the worst bunts I have ever seen.

Derek Jeter is supposed to be a guy who does everything well, but I can now name two things he is terrible at: being humble in his retirement season and bunting.

Well, there’s a third thing I know he’s terrible at too: committing to a relationship. But this is neither the time nor the place.

Work on your bunting Derek. Or just don’t bunt anymore.
