Twins’ Gilberto Celestino nearly clobbered Gary Sanchez in the face in the on-deck circle

Gary Sanchez nearly lost his head while walking near the on-deck circle.

On Sunday, the Minnesota Twins were visiting the Chicago White Sox when disaster almost struck. With Gilberto Celestino in the on-deck circle warming up, Sanchez was walking back to the dugout after his at bat. Unaware that his teammate was there, Celestino took a large swing with his bat to finish warming up, one which came mere centimeters from clocking Sanchez square in the face.

Thankfully for everyone involved, Celestino’s errant swing went above Sanchez’s head, but this was way too close for comfort for any of the parties involved.

Yeah, that could have been real bad had it connected. Definitely a lesson learned for Celestino here.
