Reds’ Minor League Pitcher Hits Batter, Catcher And Ump On Same Pitch [VIDEO]
By: Evan Jankens
People say the toughest thing to do in all of sports is hit a round ball with a round bat. I would say Mr. Curtis Partch trumped that big time. Partch is a pitcher for the Louisville Bats (Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds) and was able to get a trifecta — all in one pitch. Partch hit the batter, catcher and the umpire all in one pitch.
I’m not exactly sure how the ball managed to pinball around like that but I would like to bet he couldn’t do this again if he tried 100 times.
The catcher was Tucker Barnhart, umpire was David Soucy.
The bats also got in on the fun on their Twitter account.
Good thing they have a sense of humor about the situation.
