“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston got hit hard during Saturday night’s All-Star Celebrity Softball game in Dodger Stadium.

Cranston, 66, was reportedly hit in his right shoulder by actor and singer Anthony Ramos during batting practice outside the park, according to The Associated Press. The elder actor was doubled over for a few moments before heading to his trailer, the outlet continued.

Footage of the accident was shared on Twitter, showing the second that Ramos realized he’d hit Cranston. Cranston can be seen relaxing on his knees as Ramos and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” comedian Guillermo Rodriguez stand by him. Rodriguez can be heard asking Cranston if he needed water in the clip.

“It’s definitely going to bruise,” Cranston said after the fact, according to The AP, noting that “I might be more of a cheerleader in this game.” Yet, Cranston recovered and went to play on the field, and even got into a fake fight with the umpire after he took a called third strike, as seen in another video shared on Twitter.
