KANSAS CIT, MO — During his time with the Arizona Diamondbacks, pitcher Trevor Bauer was known for his personality and antics on the field. It looks like things haven’t changed much.

During Sunday’s game Bauer was frustrated after giving up 7 earned runs in just 4.1 innings, so he decided to take his frustrations out on the baseball.

As he was about to be removed from the game, Bauer turned and launched the baseball all the way over the outfield fence.

Just to note, the pitcher’s mound is approximately 350 feet from the center field wall.

Luckily, the ball landed in an area without fans, going directly over the center fielder’s head.

Bauer immediately apologized to the Indians coach, and issued an apology from the locker room after the game.

The Indians lost the game to the Royals 9-6.
