This Is What It Looks Like When A Rockies 3rd Base Coach Gets Hit In The Face By A Baseball While Bobby Valentine Previews A Rockies-Cardinals Game | Sharapova's Thigh

Before yesterday's Rockies-Cardinals game on Sunday Night Baseball, ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine was giving a preview of the game from the booth. In the background, the Rockies were taking infield practice on the field. And Rockies third base coach Rich Dauer was not expecting a throw from Rockies infielder Chris Nelson.

And unfortunately for Dauer, Nelson's throw was a strike:

Ouch. Dauer suffered a broken nose and was taken to the ER, but was cleared to travel home with the team.
