(Newser) – There's taking one for the team, and then there's Stephen Piscotty's adventures while scoring a run Tuesday for his St. Louis Cardinals. As a video at Belly Up Betting shows, he got beaned by the ball three separate times in the effort. First, he got hit by a pitch to reach base.

The good news: No signs of a concussion, reports the St. Louis Dispatch. (Read more baseball stories.)
