As many guys can attest to: getting hit in the groin isn't fun.
During Wednesday night's Texas Rangers/Los Angeles Angels game, home plate umpire John Hirschbeck unfortunately took a pitch to the groin due to an unlucky bounce.
Texas catcher A.J. Pierzynski was at the plate and Angels pitcher Nick Maronde fired a low fastball to catcher Chris Ianetta.
A.J. swung at the pitch and the ball deflected off of Ianetta's glove right into John's groin:
