Watch Clayton Kershaw hit Jimmy Kimmel in the face

With a baseball. For a segment. But just imagine if they really got in a fight!

When Clayton Kershaw tries to throw softly, two things happen: a) He throws like an 11-year-old throwing a cantaloupe, and b) he loses his pinpoint command. I'm sure Jimmy Kimmel thought all pitchers had pinpoint command when he agreed to do this bit. He was wrong.

If you're partial to the GIF arts:


Kershaw has hit 21 batters in his career, none of whom were wearing apples on their heads while taunting the pitcher. Kimmel learned a valuable lesson about just how fine pitchers can be with their command. Even the great ones.
