Derek Jeter gets hit by pitch in slo-mo

During Saturday afternoon's sweltering matinee in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter turned to avoid getting hit in the jewels by an inside pitch and— when replayed in slow-motion— it kind of looks like he was doing the Watusi or some other dance from the '60's.

Whether or not Jake Peavy's fifth-inning throw was intentional, Jeter just shook it a little more and took his base.

The Chicago White Sox pitcher might have just been trying to cool off the Yankees' bats which were as hot as the 100° temperature on the field.  By the sixth-inning, three of the Yankees four runs were solo home runs off of the Chicago righty.
