PLAYERS: CJ Wilson
TEAMS: Los Angeles Angels
In what may be one of the most embarrassing moments for a major league baseball player this season (and funniest for us to watch), Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson tripped and fell flat on his face while jogging out to the mound during Tuesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Your browser does not support iframes. It happened as Wilson came out to the mound in the middle of the second inning and tripped after stepping over the third base line. No way for Wilson to hide or cover that one up. Fortunately, Wilson was OK, which means we can laugh at this GIF as he trips and falls over and over again: Video via MLB. GIF via @CorkGaines. H/T NIS.
