Watch Yankees’ Brett Gardner Angrily Launch Helmet, Take Ricochet To Face

Brett Gardner couldn’t buy one Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field
The New York Yankees outfielder narrowly missed a home run in the first inning only to strike out to lead off the ballgame Gardner put good wood on the baseball in the sixth inning as well, but he was robbed of extra bases via a sensational running catch by Indians outfielder Jordan Luplow, who crashed into the wall to make the grab
Gardner understandably was frustrated following Luplow’s web gem Unfortunately for the 35-year-old, injury was added to insult as he released his anger in the dugout It’s all fun and games until the helmet bounces back and hits you in the face pictwittercom/gy6Lpgrhlf
