There's no crying in baseball, but nobody would've blamed New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli if he had decided to shed a tear after taking a foul ball to a very sensitive part of his body during Wednesday's game.

The Detroit Tigers' Rajai Davis hit a foul ball that could not have wound up in a worse place. Let's just say that Cervelli went down quickly.

The broadcasters originally thought that the ball had hit Cervelli in the collarbone, but they quickly realized that was not the case.
