If they tried to do this again, my guess is they never could.
In a bizarre occurrence of timing, karma, or just simple bad luck, Travis Shaw, the third baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers, was hit in the neck with a throw while trying to steal second base. Check it out:
The Brewers were playing the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday when Shaw headed for second. Rays catcher Jose Sucre uncorked a throw that hit Shaw right in the neck. Shaw was on the ground for a few seconds but walked off the field under his own power.
After the game, Shaw said he was sore, but OK. He suffered a bruised neck, according to ESPN, and is day-to-day after concussion tests cleared him to play.
