Everyone knows Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton has serious power. After seeing this picture, though, it turns out we may have underestimated it.
Jordan Jacobson, a fan at the 2014 MLB Home Run Derby at Target Field, posted a photo of what happened to his hand after he apparently tried to catch a Stanton blast. Let this be a lesson to anyone who tries to catch a Stanton-hit ball with bare hands.
Here's what Jacobson had to say about the experience, via Page Q Sports' Josh Baumgard: "It was extremely painful at first, then went numb after about 15 minutes. It probably would have felt better if I would have gotten the ball."
He didn't even get the ball. That's just adding insult to injury.

It looks like the fan will get a ball after all.
