Took a line drive off his head and had to have surgery due to a contusion and fractured skull. Oakland A's doctors saying that apparently he's still in a pretty dangerous situation though has shown positive signs. No most aren't bothered by baseball but A) it's pretty grim and B) he's a big red.

That's sad. I hope he does OK.

 

He seems to be a big supporter. Interesting. I'm not sure about his Missus' tank top.

 

 

He also made a big stand against homophobia in baseball earlier this year which made the news

 

 

Seen him pitch live three times this year - he's excellent. Hope he gets well soon and is back pitching in time for the post season

Yeah, its exactly like that. I saw video of it and he appeared to be pretty much fine after a couple of minutes. Just shows the improvement in medical policy these days. I am sure ten/twenty years ago they would have assumed that he was fine and he wouldnt have had the tests.
