One of the dangers of playing America's national past-time is that, every now and then, you might get hit in the head with a baseball.
That's what happened to Carlos Gomez of the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday when rookie pitcher Noah Syndergaard accidentally caught him in the head with a fastball that was measured at 97 mph.
Thankfully, he was wearing a helmet which took a good bit of the impact, and he was not diagnosed as having a concussion afterwards, which is all good news. He was even able to tweet about it with Syndergaard later on that night.
@Noahsyndergaard Thx for the concern bro, it's part of the game. Thank God I'm ok. Keep up the good work, ur going to be a great pitcher!
