Bryan Cranston Takes A Line Drive To Shoulder At All-Star Softball
Bryan Cranston's Walter White once said, "I'm a beater." On Saturday at Dodger Stadium, Cranston actually knocked and hit a line drive during the All-Star.
The event is part of the Major League Baseball festival that precedes Tuesday's All-Star Game at the stadium.
Cranston was hit in the right shoulder on a line drive from the bat of Grammy Award winner Anthony Ramos as she practiced hitting in a makeshift sidecar off the field.
"He's definitely going to get beat," Cranston said later. “Maybe I'm more of a cheerleader in this game.
But he showed the power that made him a star, and Cranston later felt very comfortable playing the field at Dodger Stadium. He called the third strike and pretended to plead with the umpire.
Cranston played for a Los Angeles team that lost to Brooklyn 15-13. Former San Francisco Giants star Hunter Pence hit two home runs for Brooklyn and was booed several times by the LA public.
Baseball is Cranston's passion. Appeared in a few games for the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes, He and Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul plan to throw a ceremonial first pitch there on July 30
Cranston, 66, doubled over for a few minutes and then went to his nearby trailer.
