It's a great day for afternoon baseball in Oakland if you're a fan, but to play? Not so much.

Coco Crisp discovered that the hard way in the fifth inning of Friday's game when Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Steve Tolleson lifted an innocent fly ball into center field and let the sun do the work.

Tolleson was credited with a double on the play. Meanwhile, Crisp was spared an error but it's doubtful he avoided a bruise.
