Dodgers superman Yasiel Puig continues to impress, and his latest feat is taking a fastball to the face and managing to get up and take his base—something that eventually led to a big fight.


It took the rookie slugger a while to recover, of course. Puig's 0-2 so far in the game, dropping his average to a pedestrian .471, but this is impressive nonetheless. He's so good he can even bend the rules of the game. The baseball that hit him, meanwhile, was sent to Cedars-Sinai for an MRI. [KCAL]

Update (12:27 a.m.): Ian Kennedy drilled Zack Greinke in the head, and this happened.


That looks like J.P. Howell trying to throw D'Backs assistant hitting coach Turner Ward over the top rope. You remember Turner Ward from this:

Always unwillingly ending up outside the field of play, this guy. Also making an appearance: Mark McGwire, full of rage—and Don Mattingly brawling with Alan Trammell.
