    It n today's afternoon game between the Pirates and Colorado Rockies Pirate pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was hit in the face with a pitch. He laid on the ground for a long time and eventually was carted off of the field directly to a waiting ambulance.

    At first it was feared that he had stuffed a broken orbital bone, but now the Pirates trainer is reporting from the hospital that the injury "is to the eye itself" and that they are fearing for his sight.

    If the NL would just use the DH rule this would not have happened.

    man....for that to happen to a pitcher is even shittier somehow.

    Tony Conigliaro got one right in the eye socket once, came back and had 30 home runs one season....was never the same though.

    good news for Vog is that he isn't a full time hitter so even if his eye is never quite the same, he might be able to still pitch

    whenever they say they're fearing for his sight though that isn't good, baseball kinda takes a back seat there

    Same thing happened to me when I used to pitch in Jr High. A batter crushed one and I took a direct hit to the eye on the pitcher's mound. Knocked me out.

    Went to hospital, and doctor told my mom he doubted I'll be able to see out of that eye again (it was totally black and red). Within 2 months I had my vision back and I've had 20/20 vision for the next 20 years, though my eye is slightly larger than the other (it cracked my orbital bone).

    I can still see the threads of the baseball approaching my eye. :jj:

    Fuck the DH. The AL game has hardly any strategy in it. Horrible.

    It really reminded me of when Giancarlo Stanton was hit in the face in 2014.
