These Houston Astros fans are fuming: Best fan reactions to the pitch that hit Jake Marisnick
HOUSTON – Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick gracefully faced down an 89 mph pitch to the back Tuesday night in Anaheim, California against the Los Angeles Angels.
Some are applauding the Astros player for his calm reaction to the pitch as he took his base, as well as how he handled his fellow players -- telling them to get back into the dugout after words were exchanged between players.
See the whole incident here:
It was the first game versus Los Angeles since a violent home-plate collision with catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Lucroy’s nose was broken and he had a concussion from the home plate smashup.
Fans, too, have shared their feelings about the incident on social media. Here are some of the posts discussing the Marisnick incident. Please be aware -- some strong language is included in these social media posts.
I hope Noe Ramirez gets suspended for 25 games. First of all... stop throwing at people. It’s a 100 mph flying object. You throw it at a guys head.... ok... maybe 25 isn’t enough #Marisnick— Zachary Blain (@Zachman285) July 17, 2019
As one that was very vocal about #Marisnick & his incident with Lucroy, I’m not OK with throwing at Marisnick to send a message in this case. But it does demonstrate how teammates are still upset about his slide that could have caused permanent damage. https://t.co/riSljK0imV— The Tenth Man (@man_tenth) July 17, 2019
I am still livid about last nights @astros head shot courtesy of the @Angels. You want to retaliate for an accident that left a player injured, fine, but keep it to the back or thigh and not a fucking fastball to the head. #Astros #jakemarisnick— Katie (@Katie_Bug211) July 17, 2019
