Botched High Five – Jason McCann Hit In Eye By Teammate [VIDEO]
Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann hit a grand slam against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. He was greeted with a smack in the face by teammate Michael Bourn.
Jason McCann hit a grand slam off of Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay last night. McCann was greeted by his teammates Michael Bourn at home plate. Unfortunately, McCann and Bourn weren't exactly on the same page when they tried to connect on a double high five. Bourn accidentally smacked McCann in his grill.
McCann was poked in the eye by Bourn's overzealous left hand. McCann was fine and actually laughed off the botched celebration. It's always funny to see athletes screw up high fives. Tiger Woods has unveiled plenty of extremely awkward high fives with his caddies. It's always a good time. McCann's grand slam tied the game 6-6. The Braves eventually won the game 15-13 in 11 innings thanks to a walk-off home run by Chipper Jones. No, Chipper wasn't smacked in the face by Michael Bourn after crossing home plate.
