After getting hit in the mouth this afternoon, Torii Hunter left the game and was taken to the hospital. Thankfully, he was diagnosed with nothing worse than a cut lip.
I don't know about you, but I was freaking out. Losing his bat would be bad, but the repurcussions of getting hit in the head with a baseball could have been much worse. When it comes to this kind of thing, the prospect of losing Hunter's offense takes a back seat to his health.
Thanks for taking one for the team, Torii, but going this far isn't necessary. I'm glad you're okay.
