We have seen some first pitch ceremonies go horribly wrong across Major League Baseball (we’re looking at you, John Wall) over the years, but what happened to Los Angeles Angels coach Don Baylor last night is totally unprecedented. Baylor was catching the first pitch from Vladimir Guerrero when he somehow broke his leg.
Everything looked normal at first, with Baylor getting down on one knee awaiting the delivery from Vlad. Then, his right leg gave out and twisted under him in a way that will make you cringe. Baylor tried to get up and walk it off, but his leg buckled again.
