The Miami Marlins were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night. In the 7th inning, pitcher Dan Jennings took Jody Mercer’s line drive off the side of his skull.
Not pretty. Not the shot, nor the aftermath.
The ball was traveling at 101 miles per hour and perhaps what’s most surprising is that Jennings’ head wasn’t a bloody mess afterwards or that he wasn’t knocked out cold.
Jennings was eventually carted off the field and it looks like he only has a concussion.
