Must See Picture: Noah Syndergaard Makes His Mark On Fellow Teammate, Kevin Plawecki

It is no secret that Noah Syndergaard is one of the most talked about pitchers in 2016. What isn’t to love? He can throw his fastball 100+ MPH, a slider that has touched 95 MPH, and he looks like the superhero Thor. Well now he can add one more title to his resume, “catchers worst nightmare.” While I’m sure catchers enjoy catching his pinpoint accuracy, I know they must cringe when they see one of his pitches approaching the dirt and they know they must make the ultimate sacrifice, a block. New York Mets catcher, Kevin Plawecki, can confirm that previous statement. In last night’s game versus the Philadelphia Phillies, Plawecki had the honor to drop and block one of Thor’s pitches in the dirt and the result has many people saying “‘holy’ cow, that must hurt.” The high-velocity pitch from Syndergaard caused Plawecki’s cross necklace to leave a brand across his chest after impact. Luckily for Plawecki, I’m sure the short-term pain felt much better after the Mets beat the Phillies 5-2. See the picture of Kevin Plawecki’s chest in the link below:
