The Baltimore Orioles have only had the pleasure of working with their current bullpen coach since November, and he is already making quite an impact on the organisation.
Dom Chiti is no ordinary bullpen coach, he may just be the best bullpen coach in the world.
This assessment is not based on his qualities as a coach, but more is ability to keep working after taking a ball to the head.
The incident we are referring to came yesterday during the Orioles match-up against New York Yankees, which they won 14-5.
Chiti was just going about his business in the bullpen sorting out things, when a ball came his way.
One of the Orioles pitchers should have caught the flying ball, but instead he missed it and Chiti took it to the head whilst he was bent down.
Rather than wallow in self pity after the hit, he immediately dusted himself off and gave the pitcher a ball within seconds, proving that this man takes his job seriously.
