How depressing is this? A planned joke has backfired... on a little boy!
It all started when five-year-old Leo Schneider was chosen out of the stands at the Cincinnati Reds' ballpark to go on the field!
As Dee Gordon, a second baseman for the Miami Marlins, squatted down to chat with the boy, Leo kicked him in the shin! Apparently, no one realized it was a JOKE and a SET UP! People went crazy on social media. You can see the ump telling Leo to kick the player, who played it for laughs as he "shook off" the blow.
