Minor Leaguer Hits a Bird with a Pitch

Shades of Randy Johnson.

In an unfortunate series of events, West Michigan Whitecaps pitcher Jon Maciel accidentally struck a bird with a pitch. Maciel's delivery crossed the plate at the exact same time as the bird was flying by.

The scene was reminiscent of Randy Johnson's accidental bird explosion.

No word yet on if Maciel plans to change his Twitter avatar.
