Santiago Casilla Takes Worst At-Bat Ever, Walks on Four Pitches (Video)
Santiago Casilla is a relief pitcher. A relief pitcher for the Giants who prior to Sunday, never batted in MLB. That fact was pretty evident when he stepped to the plate in the top of the 9th inning against the Marlins in their series finale. To say he wanted no part of the plate does not do his at-bat justice. You have to see this at-bat Casilla takes, as passed along by Hot Clicks:
So what was more pathetic, Casilla’s approach at the plate, or Jose Ceda who walked him on four straight pitches? I’ll say Casilla, because if I were Ceda that would have distracted me too. Seriously, the only thing that could have made that at-bat more embarrassing is if they did this.
