Jameson Taillion should win a tough guy award after his performance for the Pirates on Tuesday night. The Pirate's right-handed pitcher took a line drive off the back of his head – and he stayed in the game.

The ball hit him at 105 mph, according to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette beat writer, and it ricocheted all the way into left field for a base hit. Watch it happen here.
