August 6, 2012. I've never been hit by a baseball thrown at full force anywhere but in my glove. Monday night I saw Alexei Ramirez get hit by one though, and he went down clutching his arm and lay face down for a little bit before getting up and having his arm looked at by a trainer. Even then, he looked shaky for a few more minutes. He may or may not have wanted a more physical revenge, but at least the White Sox beat pitcher Luis Mendoza and the Kansas City Royals by a score of four to two, with two home runs.
