James Shields on giving up Bartolo Colon home run: ‘Next question’

Bartolo Colon home run

Bartolo Colon belted his first career home run on Saturday night, and James Shields was responsible for serving it up. Rather than laugh off giving up a big fly to a 42-year-old who is one of the worst hitting pitchers in baseball, Shields seemed somewhat embarrassed.

When asked what pitch he threw to Colon, Shields quickly responded that it was a fastball. The San Diego Padres pitcher then refused to answer a follow-up question about it.

You can see a video of the home run heard ’round the world here.

Nobody wanted to be the guy to give up a homer to Colon, but you have to man up. Shields could have been a little less cranky.
