Derek Jeter Beaned In The Head Against Cleveland Indians [VIDEO]
There was a scary moment on Friday night as Derek Jeter got beaned in the head by Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber. What did Jeter yell at Kluber afterward?
It looks like Derek Jeter yelled, “You don’t do that,” after getting hit with a 92 MPH fastball in the helmet on Friday night. Jeter was upset with Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber. Jeter expressed after the game that he was telling Kluber to be very careful when throwing pitches up and in.
Jeter also admitted that he was angry with the young pitcher. “Of course you’re angry. No one wants to get hit in the head,” Jeter said. “I don’t think anyone throws at someone’s head on purpose. I don’t see any reason why. I haven’t faced the guy and I don’t know the guy. I don’t think he did that, but if you’re throwing up and in, you’ve got to be careful. That’s a dangerous area to be throwing. Fortunately, there are no problems.”
