Reader NatsLady pointed this out in the comments this morning: 14 batters were hit by pitches yesterday. She and others who researched it and tweeted about it last night say that the record for a single day’s worth of games is 22. Worth noting we didn’t have a full slate of games yesterday, however.
There are the guys who took one for the team:
Note that Giancarlo Stanton isn’t on the list. The umpire said his bat went around as he tried to avoid the pitch. Which, OK, based on the video is technically true, but that’s some pretty coldblooded umping right there. That’s like charging a guy who got hit by a bus with vandalism of city property.
