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.
