David Robertson was every man in the world last night.
Robertson, the former White Sox closer now pitching in relief for the New York Yankees, was on the mound during Tuesday night's AL wild card game when catcher Gary Sanchez took a foul ball right to a rather sensitive area.
Sanchez took the blow, but it was actually Robertson who ended up getting more social-media attention for his reaction, one shared in living rooms across America.

Sanchez took to Twitter on Wednesday morning, after the Yankees bested the Minnesota Twins to advance to the ALDS, to report that he was OK — and to poke a little fun at Robertson.
