Seeing one baseball player hit in the groin is comedy, but seeing two baseball players hit each other in the groin is just high art. That’s what Tampa Bay Rays’ outfielder Carlos Gomez and infielder Jake Bauers managed to do while chasing down a foul pop-up Saturday against the Seattle Mariners, though.

Gomez managed to catch the ball and hang on, though, and the Rays won the game 7-3. So this didn’t end all that badly in the end. And hey, this was a nice win for the Rays (who improved to 29-34 and beat the hot 40-24 Mariners. But it was definitely pretty disastrous for these two players in the moment.
