Carlos Asuaje's homer hit a Pirates fan right in the beans

1

Carlos Asuaje hit a home run that just barely cleared the rightfield wall at PNC Park. The fan with the (un?)lucky seat had his hands down to protect his jewels until the last moment, when he inexplicably pulled his hands up and exposed the family jewels. The homer appeared to strike him right in the coinpurse, at which time it rebounded onto the field with such velocity that many in attendance questioned whether the ball had, in fact, left the field of play. After a brief review, it was clear that not only had the ball cleared the fence, but it had also struck this poor fellow right in the beans. No word yet on the Padres fan sitting to the gentleman's left, but kudos to him for consoling his friend in a time of great emotional and physical pain.
