Just get out of the way.

When Jordan Jacobson went to this year's Gillette Home Run Derby, he hoped he might catch a homer. But he wasn't expecting to be on the receiving end of a Giancarlo Stanton missile. On top of the nasty bruise and swelling, Jordan didn't even get the ball. Ouch.

When Jordan Jacobson went to this year's Gillette Home Run Derby, he hoped he might catch a homer. But he wasn't expecting to be on the receiving end of a Giancarlo Stanton missile. On top of the nasty bruise and swelling, Jordan didn't even get the ball. Ouch.

Stanton put on a show in the first round of the Derby.

UPDATE: The story has a happy ending! Stanton responded to Jordan tonight and is sending him a glove and ball. Classy move from the Marlins slugger.

UPDATE 2: We swung and missed on this story big time, as according to Jordan, the original tweet was meant to be a joke with friends and took off from there. We sincerely apologize for the error in reporting.
