Guardians OF Will Brennan hits grounder that accidentally kills bird vs. White Sox

May 23, 2023

Another week, another bird death in baseball.

Cleveland Guardians outfielder Will Brennan hit a grounder that collided with a bird sitting between second and third base during the second inning of a game with the Chicago White Sox. The bird appeared to be killed instantly by the 100.1 mph ball and was taken off the field by a member of the grounds crew with a shovel.

It's hard to see at first, but the bird can be spotted when the camera cuts to Brennan on second base.

Brennan later apologized on Twitter for the accidental killing.

The Guardians went on to beat the White Sox, 3-0. Brennan's only hit of his three at-bats was the one that killed the bird.
