Tampa Bay Rays star Carl Crawford was hit in the groin during a game against the Baltimore Orioles, causing an extremely painful testicular contusion. The unpleasant injury occurred during the first inning, when Orioles pitcher Jake Arrieta tried to pick off the four-time All-Star at first base. The throw hit Crawford right in the groin, and he left the game after writhing on the ground in pain.
"[Arrieta] caught me square," Crawford said after the game, which the Rays lost in extra innings. "He couldn't have hit it in a better spot. It just took the wind right out of me." Scroll down for video of the dreadful mishap.
