    Our junior high school track coach took a discus to the junk from our star athlete, Bill Caldwell. It was epic.

    A friend took one in '68 like that during our HS baseball practice warm-up.
    WE ALL wore cups after that, the coach gave us a dressing down, but we had already learned the lesson.

    Beltre is a stud. Like one the the quietest HOF careers of all time.

    I took a one-hopper to the sack when catching in Little League. Cups were mandatory, so I had to pretend like it caught me in the gut. I still occasionally see double today--or at least when I think about it, I do!

    I witnessed a spinning g heel kick to the junk in a martial arts class in my teens. It was inadvertent. The guy throwing the kick was aiming for the gut but the other guy had the ill-fortune to extend into a side kick at the exact wrong moment. He was lifted off his feet and dropped shaking to the ground. A couple days later his dad came to tell the instructor he wouldn't be returning. Ruptured a testicle and had to have it removed.

    Has to have a cup on. Maybe a ball slipped out, or it was a taint strike.

    He supposedly doesn't wear a cup. As does Beltran. Idiots, if you ask me.

    A real man would have clubbed that ball like a baby seal with his Johnson.

    Mine big enough to take care of itself.

    yeah...that was by far the worst sports injury I've ever seen. I remember seeing that live and figuring the guy was dead right there.

    Just nuts, no pun intended, not to wear safety gear.

    There isn't a cup made that I would trust against a 102 mph fast ball.

    in Tang Soo Do for 7 years. We never wore cups. Didn't wear gear until the insurance company mandated it. Nobody got hit in the junk. But there was far less control of technique after pads were mandated. So more kids got punched in the face. Funny how pads do the opposite of what is intended. No pads forced more focus on control and better technique.

    Yeah I hear ya and there’s truth to that.

    BUT, if it were an MMA fight, you’d be wearing a cup. Or, you’d get you nuts kicked up into your throat.
    This guy sits behind home plate with his legs spread while some badass throws hunnert mile an hours fastballs/curveballs/sliders at his nether regions. Thousands of times, for years.

    Little bit different than karate class. Just sayin!

    Entirely. Not wearing a cup as a catcher is the height of arrogance. One has to believe oneself to be of superhuman reflexes.

    I can tell you pain of having of a two year old running in to your nuts after coming home from a snip job.

    Just open the door and got in to the house. What a way to say, Dads home.

    This^^^. No way I could have ever played the catcher position.
    You must not have had many girls in the class. They were the worst. Especially the 16-18 year olds.

    My wife didn't believe me when I told her that, when I started playing Little League machine pitch, we had one cup. For the whole team. It floated around in the helmet bag til game day and whoever was catching that day, dumped it out of the bag and slid it in their pants.

    A guy I went to school with got kicked in the nads with a pointy toe cowboy boot. One testicle swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. Worst looking thing I’ve ever seen.
