    Worst fear when you're up at the plate.

    I was at a Phillies game years ago when pitcher Norm Charlton took a line drive to the face. Ive never heard a crowd of that size go silent like that. Very scary for a little while.

    Batters get hit all the time, but rarely square in the face. The nasty ones are the rocket shots come-backers off the bat that damn near take the pitchers head off!

    Baseball is well aware of safety equipment they could use, including face protecting batting and infield helmets, wearing helmets while base running, infield chest protectors, etc. But they choose not to wear them.
    Just like it took pro hockey decades to start wearing helmets. Its just dumb. But most things we do collectively are dumb :dontknow:

    Was it a ball, or a strike?

    Howard gets balls to the face from Ralph all the time. I don't see him wearing a protective cage....

    I'm from Milwaukee and a Brewers fan and I can say that Mike Fiers, the pitcher who hit Stanton is not a headhunter. Just a pitch that got away from him and unfortunately caught the guy in the face. You could see he was shaken after it happened as well as when he was interviewed in the locker room after the game.

    I do like how the organist is playing la-dee-dah music in the background as this guy is writhing in pain on the field.

    Some players never recover from a beaning like that. If he doesn't it's gonna cost him MILLIONS!

    It was nice that the organ player kept it festive and uplifting.

    Stanton swung at the pitch.
    That quitter should have walked it off.

    The umpires ruled that Stanton swung at the pitch, setting up an 0-2 count. Reed Johnson pinch hit for Stanton and was hit in the hand by Fiers' next pitch.
