Umpire Forced to Leave Game After Taking Warmup Pitch Directly to the Junk

By Jason Fletcher

A lot of times, umpires will get in their stance to watch a few warmup pitches from the starting pitcher to get a feel for things.

Unfortunately, a cutter got away from Tigers starter Michael Fulmer and caught Everitt right in the giblets.
