Hart gets a fright from stray baseball

As a goalkeeper, Joe Hart is used to balls flying in his direction.

Just don’t toss him a baseball.

The England No 1, who is on tour with Manchester City in Canada, had a fright while trying his hand at the popular American sport during a visit to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team.

Hart was waiting for his turn to bat when a stray ball flew towards him after a poor hit by reserve goalkeeper Richard Wright.

Hart let out a loud scream and dodged the projectile, prompting Toronto officials to break out into laughter.

Perhaps, he should just stick to football?

For the record, Hart was an unused substitute as City beat Major League Soccer side Toronto FC 1-0 in front of 23,000 fans at the Canadian team’s BMO Field on Thursday, thanks to a long-range strike by substitute midfielder George Evans.

Watch Hart here.
