This one’s tough to watch. In the second inning of the Jays-Rays game, Toronto’s J.A. Happ took a friggin laser off of the left side of his head and immediately crumpled to the ground in a heap, clutching the area around his ear. One camera angle shows him pulling his hand away and him looking at a hand covered in blood.
This is literally a pitcher’s worst nightmare, and I can only hope and pray that the former Phillie isn’t too badly hurt, has a quick recovery, and can quickly get over the inevitable fear he’ll have of stepping back on a professional baseball mound.
