The reaction of Yankees pitcher David Robertson — the man responsible for the ball-crushing error — pretty much summed up the feelings of everyone watching.

Obviously, the gaffe sent ball-bearing twitter user into a state of pure shock, and then came “Simpsons” references:

Sanchez was eventually able to carry on with the game, and led his team to victory, which is a small consolation considering the immense pain he was no doubt in.

Here’s hoping he won’t only be remembered as the man who got hit in the nuts with a wayward baseball.
