    ... Do NOT select a seat atop the net behind home plate, as it could result in death or serious injury. .. Now back to your regular programming






    James McCann hits bird with foul ball

    James McCann of the Detroit Tigers ruffled a few feathers Friday — literally — when he hit a foul ball that struck a bird perched atop the backstop behind home plate, knocking the animal into the lap of a fan sitting below.

    For baseball fans and bird watchers, the incident is a reminder of the time years ago when Hall of Fame left-hander Randy Johnson obliterated a bird mid-flight with a fastball at spring training.

    Word from the ballpark, reports James Schmehl of MLive, was that the bird survived the trauma. Although, after seeing the video posted by WDIV Local 4 in Detroit, it's hard to imagine that the bird could live for long. (Also, note the creepy funeral home music at the video's onset.)
