AJ Pollock Becomes Instant GIF After Faceplanting While Chasing Down A Flyball In Left Field

Bally Sports

AJ Pollock likely won’t want to open up social media for the next day or two following an embarrassing faceplant in the White Sox Tuesday night matchup against the Guardians.

The left fielder attempted to run down a fly ball in the outfield but tripped and fell before he could wrangle the hit. It was like something you’d see in a Charlie Chaplin movie, the only thing missing was the circus music.

The result of the mishap was a triple for Cleveland batter Andres Gimenez, who would score later in the inning on a sacrifice fly. Through five frames, that’s been the only run scored in the ballgame.

Making things worse, the White Sox are chasing the Guardians in the AL Central race, currently trailing Cleveland by four games in the division. Those four games will likely be the difference between a playoff appearance for Chicago or sitting home in October.

Pollock’s lost footing won’t help those postseason chances, but it’s definitely given baseball fans something to talk about on social media.
