Tampa Bay Rays pitcher takes line-drive to the groin

Published Add your comment

Tampa Bay Rays' pitcher, David Price is among the best in the league. Last year he got the better of most of the majors as he struck out 151 batters.

However, during a game against the Minnesota Twins, Price gave up one hit that he will never forget to Joe Mauer.

Mauer smoked a pitch from Price right back at the pitcher with the ball striking the Rays man painfully in the groin area.

To his credit, Price did attempt to field the ball but Mauer reached first base regardless. Price then received treatment from Rays staff before finishing the game and recording his third victory of the season.
