Stephen Cardullo ate it after tripping over the bullpen mound, but came up all smiles

If you've ever walked into a glass door or tripped over your own feet in a public space, then you know the kind of sheepish grin one gives while hoping no one noticed. Unfortunately for Rockies outfielder Stephen Cardullo, not only were there thousands fans in attendance when he biffed it after catching Conor Gillaspie's fly ball during Saturday's 5-0 win against the Giants, but there were countless more watching at home: 

Of course, Cardullo probably doesn't care very much. Not only did he quickly pivot into showing a very cool-looking "two outs" sign, but he picked up his first two base hits of the year. That's much more important than a mere trip over the mound.
