Bryan Cranston Wins Hearts on MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game, Says He “Might Be More of a Cheerleader”

On Saturday night, the stars shone brightly in Los Angeles.

A star-studded celebrity softball game took place as part of MLB’s All-Star week. It included stars J.K. Simmons, Robe Lowe, Bad Bunny, and Action Bronson, and many more artists. 

However, of all the stars, one stood prominent.

Actor Bryan Cranston, known for his role as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” showed why he’s one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood due to his reaction to an injury during the game.

The 66-year-old got hit by a softball on the shoulder during batting practice for the All-Star Celebrity Softball game that took place at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on Saturday evening. 

As soon as he was hit with the softball by “In the Heights” actor Anthony Ramos, Cranston went down on his knees for a minute. 

Ramos rushed to the actor’s side as he saw him double over and checked with him if he was okay, asking, “Are you all right?”

Comedian Guillermo Rodriguez from “Jimmy Kimmel Live” also showed up and asked the actor if he needed water. 

Eventually, with Ramos’ help, Cranston got back on his feet. The actor went on to put his arms around both guys reassuring them that there were no hard feelings as he continued to rub his shoulder.

In the incident video, he could be seen being asked if the actor wanted tequila, to which he replied, “might have to, yeah.”

Later on, Cranston went back to his trailer and confessed, “It’s definitely going to bruise. I might be more of a cheerleader in this game.”

Comedian Guillermo also shared a video on Twitter where he knocked out a camera during his batting practice.

During the game, Cranston’s sportsmanship continued as he pretended to throw himself into the game when the umpire struck him out but he insisted it was a ball. The commentators also agreed to say, “There is no way that’s a strike.”

Cranston could be seen stomping his feet and yelling, ‘It was inside!’ in protest of the umpire’s decision, in supposed rage. 

Eventually, Cranston’s Los Angeles team lost the battle to Brooklyn 15-13 as the former San Francisco star Hunter Pence’s two home runs won the game for the NY team while being booed by the home crowd.

Perhaps, you’d be more interested in watching the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.
