It’s bad enough being a member of MLB’s worst team, the Miami Marlins. But on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field against the Tampa Bay Rays, it got even worse for outfield Marcell Ozuna. Attempting to catch a foul ball off the bat of Evan Longoria, Ozuna went head first into the wall after he tripped and fell over the bullpen mound. Pretty dangerous situation and luckily Ozuna wasn’t injured. Why are there in-play bullpen mounds anyways?
Here’s how the whole thing unfolded.
