MLB 2020: Pablo Sandoval's butt hits Chris Taylor's face, Internet can't stop laughing over 'baseball butt fumble'
The throw to first base caused Sandoval to jump in the air and when he came down, he accidentally crashed straight into Taylor, smacking the latter's face with his butt
Friday night's Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Fransisco Giants game became a viral sensation on the Internet. Dodgers star Chris Taylor accidentally head-butted Giants' first baseman, Pablo Sandoval, on his bottom before falling on the base. The unflattering video sent the Internet rolling in fits of laughter, while they also worried about Taylor's safety. This happened at the second game of the Major League Baseball 2020 season. During the fifth inning of the game, Taylor hit a ball to Giants' third baseman Wilmer Flores. The throw to first base caused Sandoval to jump in the air. When he came down, he accidentally crashed straight into Taylor, smacking the latter's face with his butt, "the Panda's butt", as the Internet is calling it.
Taylor ended up face-planting the floor, but that collision had users on Twitter tripping over themselves laughing. It soon began trending along, and Sandoval's butt became the center of attention. Taylor looked dazed and confused for only a few moments but ended up being alright. After a short pause, the game resumed and Taylor remained on the base. He was then credited with an infield single. Sandoval, who has been wearing a mask at every opportunity as a prevention measure during the pandemic, wasn't exactly practising social distancing from Taylor that evening.
Taylor's unfortunate fall was the cause for ceaseless fun and chuckles throughout the night as users took to Twitter to share in the fun of the hilarious moment. Some even expressed their worry about his well-being. "If there's a player you DON'T want to get absolutely obliterated by, it's definitely Pablo Sandoval Glad Chris Taylor is okay," a fan tweeted. "Chris Taylor's face meets Pablo Sandoval's a*s," one quipped as another exclaimed, "HOW IS CHRIS TAYLOR STILL ALIVE?" Another tweeted: "The Baseball Butt Fumble. Chris Taylor’s life just flashed before his eyes when Pablo’s fat a*s almost crushed his head."
"Pablo Sandoval: Kiss My A*s! Chris Taylor: Hold My Beer," a fan tweeted the funny moment of the night as a meme. "Chris Taylor got knocked out by an a*s," quipped one fan. "Chris Taylor welcome to the Baseball BUTTFACE Hall of Fame," said another. "Pablo Sandoval’s a*s is a work hazard," one fan commented. Another made an accurate real-life reference to the Taylor-Sandoval collision saying, "Pablo Sandoval's thicc booty hit Chris Taylor's face like 2020 hit the world #oof."
