No Matter How Bad Your Day Is It’s Not Foul Ball To The Face Bad! [VIDEO]

We’ve all had some bad luck from time to time but Mets’ Wilmer Flores taking a foul ball to the face may be the worst luck of all. I’ve been watching baseball for about 40 years and I have never seen anyone foul a ball off their own face before.
The Mets have had a long terrible season with injuries and questionable downsizing. So for me this is the symbol of what this year has felt like to Mets fans. Worst part is this kid is a fan favorite. Ever since he was told he was being traded during a game and cried, Mets fans have loved this kid. Obviously the trade never took place. Better luck next year.
