That HURT !
« on: May 18, 2021, 12:35:43 PM »
Big time hurt !

Kevin Pillar, NY Mets outfielder.  Several fractures.  Pillar has one strong noggin to not get knocked out from that one.

And the pitcher was pretty much devastated.  He had to be pulled because he was a mess.  I feel really bad for both.  It was not a brush off pitch.  It was an accident.  Horrible horrible accident.  I wonder if the pitcher will be able to effectively pitch again or the batter able to effectively bat again.  If so, very very brave men!

Pillar is still in his stance.  He watched that one from when it left the P's hand.  Never budged.  That tells me he was expecting a curve.

It wasn't.

Pitchers get over it when its truly an accidental HBP.  Makes me real suspicious that he was throwing at his head expecting Pillar to duck away.
