Baltimore Orioles outfielder and first baseman Jay Gibbons literally stung his wife. Gibbons fouled a ball straight back over the screen in the ninth inning of Baltimore's game against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. Unfortunately, the ball lined into the rib cage of Gibbons' wife, Laura. Laura was shook up, but relatively unharmed.

The irony lies in the fact that Gibbons had earlier approached the Orioles' organization about the lack of safety in the seats behind home plate. Gibbons asked team officials to do something about making it safer to sit in the seats. He told the AP that the 20-foot screen just doesn't offer enough protection from hard-hit foul balls. He has been on this issue for the better part of the year.
