Delino DeShields Jr. Took A Fastball To The Face, Then Took A Terrifying Picture From The Hospital

  • Jake O'Donnell

During a Double-A game in Corpus Christi, Texas, the son of former big leaguer Delino DeShields (duh) was hit in the face by a baseball traveling fast enough to do this (below). He actually walked off the field on his own power, then sent this picture to a friend after he was hospitalized. The friend promptly tweeted the photo out. The picture is now circulating through the sports news world.

Whatta friend.
