WATCH: Bird hit by pitch, announcers remain optimistic on birds health
In another tragic turn of events similar to the great “Randy Johnson explodes bird with fastball” event of thirteen years ago, minor league pitcher Jonathan Maciel murdered yet another bird with a fastball right down the middle. Maciel, whom plays for the West Michigan Whitecaps, threw an 83 mph fastball that nailed a bird that was minding it’s own business.
Concerned onlookers cheered the bird as it was carried off the field. The announcers, both concerned and optimistic, also had to fight through the horrendous events the just witnessed:
Was that a bird? Boy, I hope he’s ok.
The bird was, in fact, not ok and was pronounced dead a few seconds later.
