Before the second game of the World Series, Sportsnet, a Canadian sports network, reporter Ian Mendes was about to go live with a report on Giants closer Brian Wilson when he was hit in the back with a errant baseball.
Mendes was bouncing around in pain right up until the point he went live and then he acted like nothing had happened and continued with his report. This...
"QUESTION" - "can you name me baseball's highest-ever, TV rated, World Series Game?" ( Answer at the bottom - don't look ).......
Its not the first 2 Games of this year's World Series between the Giants and Tigers. This year's the worst ever - down 13% from last year which was "the worst."
