The J.A. Happ injury last night was the most horrifying thing I’ve seen in a baseball game. I wrote something about it for ThroughTheFenceBaseball, a website I’ve been writing for over the last year and a half. Since I wrote the piece, J.A. Happ has been released from the hospital, and I’m very relieved to hear this. Still, the idea of protecting pitchers in some way needs to be looked in to immediately. The next time might not turn out this way.
