"Like a fragmentation grenade" is how South Jersey comedian Spins Nitely describes the feeling of being hit by the baseball bat that flew out of Shane Victorino's hands Sunday night.

Nitely says he was the third person to be hit by the projectile. "It hit me [in the top of the head] and went straight up in the air. Then it went east," he said, sporting a lump the morning after.

Victorino, who was clearly mortified by his slip-up, gave away two autographed bats to his victims, besides the errant one.
