"Though it didn't take long for them to get destroyed and disappear, the batter's boxes originally drawn in for Wednesday night's Reds-Giants game at AT&T Park [...] may be the most crooked and awkward looking we've ever seen," Yahoo's Big League Stew blog writes.

"How do you not notice this?" Deadspin chimes in.

And sure enough, even the broadcasters picked up on it.

"If you're wondering about the batter's box tonight, so are we!" one says in a video posted on the MLB website.

"A little out of whack," he adds.

The camera then pans to an overhead shot further accentuating the lines:

What makes this even more surprising is that baseball traditionally takes the batter's box very seriously. In fact, last season during a game between the White Sox and Tigers, the umpire stopped the game and had the box redrawn after a player complained about it.

"The lines should've been back farther," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said at the time. "The batter's box was fine, but they had it moved up too far. It wasn't aligned with the plate and everything the way it was set up, so they just changed it."

Apparently no one was as eagle-eyed on Wednesday: the lines were never redrawn.
