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. A Rod appeared devastated, leaving the field for the dugout despite his 3rd base hit. The Yankees dropped the game 11 to 13 for the Indians.
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
Dad was a big sports nut, big baseball fan and a Yankee. He followed all the games. I can remember watching the World Series with him on black and white TV in the 1950′s. They had day games then so it meant the afternoon off school.
