A Rod hit the first pitch in the bottom of the 3rd from Cleveland Indians David Huff back to left side Huff’s head. Huff was knocked backwards and appeared to be out cold.

On Sunday, Huff had no swelling or sign of a concussion. “I feel good,” Huff, 25, said, before thanking medical staff, the Yankees and fans for the support. “Scary experience. It’s one of those things, it could have been an inch this way and I wouldn’t be here talking to you.” NY Daily News
