First Pitch Fail: Don Baylor Breaks Leg on Opening Day

by at . Comments

Don Baylor is the Angels hitting coach for a reason.

The former Major League Baseball star and manager joined the Los Angeles Angels in this capacity during the offseason, yet he was sent out to field the team's ceremonial first pitch on opening day yesterday.

It came from the hand of Vladimir Guerrero and it resulted in Baylor breaking his right leg trying to catch it.

The video is actually pretty hard to watch, as Baylor had to be helped off the diamond. But he's expected to be okay.
