    The first rule of baseball should be "always wear a cup." Taking a hit to the groin is never enjoyable, and taking that risk on a field where a small, hard ball is flying around at crazy speeds is insane.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: Turns out, Gregorius was wearing a cup. While it helped, it still hurt.
