San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton took his frustrations out on his helmet. The only problem became where that helmet landed.

Late Saturday night the San Diego Padres played the Colorado Rockies.

After Padres outfielder Justin Upton was tagged out in the eighth inning, he routinely went back into the dugout in disgust, thus throwing his helmet down in frustration.

In what only can be described as “classic,” the helmet was held onto by Upton too long and it nailed teammate Yonder Alonso right in the noggin. Even more classic was Alsonso falling to the ground and displaying is own frustration – taking it out on the water cooler most notably.

At that point Upton was understandably nowhere to be found.

We’re out there competing and that’s a big point in the game and I made a big mistake. I was pretty upset about it.

It’s childish. I’ve got to do better than that and not make that mistake again.

Thank you Justin Upton, you have made many days pleasurable on Sunday.
