Man, that musta really hurt.

And a Miami-Dade jury agreed.

So the jury awarded almost $1.2 million to a 21-year-old guy who was hit in the groin by a batting-cage pitch, the Miami Herald reports.

Lhyvann Felipe was 19 years old when struck by a 60 mph pitch and landed in the hospital.

The ball struck him after an employee asked him to go back into the batting cage to help pick up the balls.

The machine, which had already completed the cycle and did not have the lights on, spit out the ball, which hit him.

The jury decided that the Sluggers batting cage operation at Tamiami Park in West Miami-Dade negligently failed to properly supervise its employees.

The judgment called for Felipe to be paid $160,000 for medical expenses and $1 million for pain and suffering.

Yeah, the million sounds about right.
