J.J. Putz spikes pitch after being startled by ill-timed sound mix up
Arizona Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz was simply going about his business on Saturday night when a mix up in
the sound booth at Chase Field nearly spooked him out of his uniform.
It happened in the ninth inning with Putz about to deliver a pitch to Justin Turner of the New York Mets. At the very split second Putz was about to release and follow through,
the opening strains of Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" suddenly
blared over the PA system. This startled Putz into delivering a near Rob Gronkowski level of thunderous baseball spike into the dirt around the pitcher's mound.
Take a look!
