Hunter Pence shares black eye photo after fouling ball off face
It is safe to say Hunter Pence is a gamer. If you need further evidence of that, his response to taking a foul ball off the face should convince you.
In Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals, the Giants outfielder fouled off a pitch that bounced up and hit him just below the right eye. In fact, he got drilled so hard, you could immediately see the seams of the baseball imprinted on his face.

Pence even managed to stay in the game after taking the shot.
On Monday, Pence gave us another look at the eye two days after the impact, and it’s not pretty.

Pence has never been one to let a little injury get him down. He’s not going to be bothered by a black eye.
