But, Did He Call the Shot?

AP sportswriter, David Ginsburg relates this baseball oddity from a recent Twins/Orioles game:

"BALTIMORE (AP) -- The odds of such an occurrence seem insurmountable, yet Jay Gibbons pulled off the unimaginable feat: He hit a foul ball that injured his wife."

"The scene occurred in the ninth inning of the Baltimore Orioles' game against Minnesota on Saturday. Gibbons fouled a ball straight back over the screen and into the rib cage of his wife, Laura."

""She's just a little bruised up. She's going to be OK," Gibbons said Sunday."

There are some witnesses that claim that just before Gibbons stepped into the batter's box, he pointed his bat directly at his wife.
