I've barely heard of Hunter Pence before this morning, but the Astros' young outfielder will now be forever famous for having the spatial reasoning of a barn swallow: Pence crashed through a plate glass sliding door that he thought had been left open, leaving him with lacerations all over his body.
Pence said he was preparing to go into the hot tub with a friend outside his apartment when he decided to go to the bathroom first. At that point, he had left the door open. When he headed back he didn't realize his friend had shut it, he said…
"There's like a ledge to go from the outside to inside and I was kind of hopping to go get up the ledge," Pence said… "And the glass door was shut, so I just didn't see the door and just jumped through it."
That sucks. One moment you're getting ready for some sexy time with a hot young piece of A in your jacuzzi, then the next thing you know you're on the ground, dazed, and covered in blood. Kind of like a date with one of my readers.
