Remember the time this former baseball player took a fastball to the face, spit out blood and walked away like it was nothing

Do they still give out "Tough man" awards anymore? Because Mike Matheny should win it every year.

Back in 1998, Matheny took a fast ball to the mouth that would've knocked most people's lower jaw clean off. Not Matheny, though.

Nope, all that happened to him was a maybe a few broken teeth, some gushing blood and a pitcher that probably feared for his job after his victim walked away rather cleanly.

It's a good thing baseball players make a crap ton of money. Those dental bills had to be even more hard to swallow than that knuckle ball sandwich he just had for dinner.
