In the course of Sunday night's Tigers-Red Sox tilt -- a 6-2 win for Detroit -- events conspired to make this happen to Tigers catcher Alex Avila ...

At this point you'll note that the headline told no tales: that's a foul ball to the biscuits/rascal basket. That was presumably painful. Because he is a catcher and thus necessarily stalwart, Avila remained in the game, whereas I would've dropped in a heap and whimpered for general anesthesia and or the sweet release of death.

I'm sure the presumable use of a protective cup helped, but consider that cold comfort at best.
