Marlon Byrd Heads to Hospital After Being Hit in the Face with a Pitch

Chicago Cubs News

The photo, from the Chicago Tribune, is of a shaken Marlon Byrd, moments after he took a pitch off the brim of his helmet and then his face in tonight’s game. He immediately went to the ground, kicked his legs in pain, and was taken out of the game. Although he never lost consciousness, he suffered a gash on his face, and was taken to the hospital for observation and treatment.


Hopefully he’ll be ok, but it was a pretty scary moment.
