Travis d’Arnaud showed the world he fears more then a 3-2 curveball¬†painted on the outside corner during Sunday’s Mets vs. Pirates game.

By Steven Cifuentes

Travis d’Arnaud forgot for a second he was on the baseball diamond, in plain view, when his fear of lighting took over.

During Sunday’s New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game, d’Arnaud was getting zoned in on the on deck circle when a crash of lighting was seen and some loud thunder heard. ¬†You would think this was the NCAA and he was carrying an aluminum bat.

Travis pulled a George Costanza and was ready to push all the women and children aside and duck for cover in the safety of the Mets dugout.


I am not saying I wouldn’t have been running right next to him for shelter, but my answer to what Mets player do you want in the bunker hole next to you just lost one candidate.
