Prince Fielder was taking cuts against Indians reliever Joe Smith in the bottom of the eighth inning when the extremely unfortunate happened.

Fielder was drilled in the thigh by a pitch, but it is his reaction that makes this so priceless.

Did the shock move a few inches too high?

What we do know is that the extra baserunner didn’t wind up helping out Fielder’s Tigers, as Det-wa fell to Cleveland, 7-6.
