John Bale Fights a Door, Door Wins

I remember one time as a kid, I think I was 12 or 13, I was home alone with my sister one night when the power went out in our house during a storm. My dad was just down the street, so I figured it would be best to go to him and let him know. So I took off running through the kitchen and down the hall to my bedroom, in complete darkness, to get my shoes and jacket.

Undeterred by the darkness, I ran full speed (like the wind!) down the hall until I went face first into my bedroom door. Oops! I learned a very valuable lesson that day, and that lesson was that a door can kick your ass if you’re not careful. If only I had been around to inform Kansas City Royals pitcher John Bale of this.Kansas City Royals left-hander John Bale, already on the disabled list due to a tight shoulder, broke his pitching hand punching a door at the team’s hotel Friday night.

A club spokesman said Bale informed team officials he had pain in his hand after arriving at Progressive Field for Saturday night’s game against Cleveland. X-rays were taken during the game, revealing the fracture on the side of his hand. Bale returned to Kansas City Sunday morning. He will be examined by team doctors, possibly as early as Monday.Dumbass. At least I didn’t know the door was closed when I ran into it, and I was only 12, so I’m expected to do stupid things. I’m not sure what the hell John was trying to accomplish here. Did that door say something about his mom? His wife?

The biggest kicker about this whole thing is that while Bale is already on the disabled list, he was scheduled to come off of it in a few days after throwing a simulated game earlier on Friday. Maybe Bale gave up a few simulated home runs to a simulated Alex Gordon, and then got confused thinking the door was a simulated punching bag. I don’t know, all I know is he has to be feeling like an idiot right now.
