Watch: Phillies Pitcher Alvarez Takes 105.3 Mph Shot Where it Hurts Most, Finishes Play, Makes the Out


BUFFALO, NY – It’s every man’s worst nightmare…on steroids.  Yesterday, Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher Jose Alvarez took a 105 mph line drive to the family jewels.  He was able to pick up the ball and make the out of first base.  Like a true professional, facing the most excruciating pain known to man, he picked himself up and got the job done.

“It was pretty bad…obviously, it hit me in my private parts. It’s a pain that’s hard to describe,” he said after the game.  “But thank God, I’m feeling much better now. Everything was good in the hospital, nothing bad. Hopefully, I’ll be good in a couple of days.”

Alvarez will join the team on their road trip to Atlanta, but manager Joe Girardi said he’ll give the pitcher a few days off to recover.   That wasn’t the only nut-shot of the day.  After leading the game 7-0, the Phillies collapsed, dropping their game to the Blue Jays 9-8.
