Kid Gets Drilled In The Head By Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Line Drive During Home Run Derby

Home Run derby

I remember it like it was yesterday.

I was 9-years-old, with big time dreams of playing in the MLB one day (But they were ultimately crushed because I realized a few years later that I was trash), and watching the Home Run Derby.

I remember seeing a bunch of kids around my age standing in the outfield and shagging fly balls, and just thinking to myself:

“Man, how cool would it be to get to do that?”

As a kid baseball player, this is the second biggest pinnacle aside from playing in the Little League World Series.

However, after watching this video from last night’s Home Run Derby, I’m kinda glad that I never got this opportunity…

Because this is an absolute worst case situation.

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was at the plate during his turn at the Home Run Derby last night, and absolutely drilled a line drive into left field.

And when I say “drilled,” the ball came off the bat at 110 mph.

Just imagine a car coming at you that quick, and trying to get out of the way of it…

Yeah, that’s scary.

And sure enough, that 110 mph ball proceeded to drill a kid directly in the head at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington last night.

You have to feel for this kid, and hope that they’re okay, because this is a childhood dream turned into an absolute nightmare.

Just see for yourself:
