The video below shows the play, but the followup story is even more amazing. Here's the followup according to ESPN.com...
St. Louis Cardinals star catcher Yadier Molina underwent surgery Saturday night after being hit in the groin by a foul tip and is expected to miss a month.
President of baseball operations John Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Molina underwent emergency surgery to treat a traumatic hematoma that required immediate attention. The Cardinals placed Molina on the 10-day disabled list Sunday.

You know it hurts if Yadier Molina stays down. He took a foul tip the the not so good area off of a 102 mph fastball from Jordan Hicks. Every man is collectively cringing. pic.twitter.com/QvaF7l8nRD— Thomas Lott (@tlott33) May 5, 2018
