Even after recording an out, a Major League Baseball pitcher has to always pay attention since anything could come flying at him including a ball.
Check out the below video clip of New York pitcher Cody Epply who in the bottom of the sixth inning of Tuesday's Tigers/Yankees affair got Detroit infielder Jhonny Peralta to ground out for the second out.
As the ball was being tossed around the infield after the out was recorded, watch as Yankees third baseman Eric Chavez attempt to throw the ball back at Epply with disastrous results.
Watch as the ball hits Cody right in the noggin:
