Former Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang played in his share of charity softball games. He says he warned Clay Matthews.
Lang was on Pat McAfee’s radio show on Monday and told the former NFL punter he warned Matthews about this very thing years ago. Matthews has long been a pitcher in the game and Lang says he told his former teammate someone was going to eventually get hit with a line drive.
Lang says he suggested that there be a screen in front of the pitcher.
Matthews obviously didn’t listen. Only after he was hit did they put up a batting practice screen in front of the mound.
Listen to Lang’s take here.
