The Yankees did not play a superb game today in Detroit against the defending American League champions. Prince Fielder was the star of the show, mashing two homers against Yankee pitching in a 8-3 victory. One of the homers prompted a GIF that's making its way around the ol' information superhighway, and while I cannot take credit for the GIF, it certainly deserves an appearance in this segment. It's almost certainly better than my GIF anyway.

This poor man thought he was getting a souvenir, but instead, he was beaten down by the sheer force of the line drive. He didn't even get the ball since it came back onto the field. To the umpires, it was unclear if it actually went over the fence; they could have just asked this guy.

Anyway, the ball caromed to right fielder Brennan Boesch, Prince's former teammate from last year in Detroit. By this point, the Yankees had lost their brief 3-2 lead since the bomb was a three-run shot. Enraged (and totally not confused about whether or not the ball was in play), Boesch fired the ball back to the infield:

Take that, ya miscreant!
