The Dodger who nearly became baseball’s second on-field fatality

According to his manager, Steve Yeager went down “like he’d been felled by a bullet.”

Fans near the on-deck circle who had a view of the incident were stunned and silent. Some turned away and a few were brought to tears.

“It was sickening,” teammate Steve Garvey said.

Randy Jones, who was on the mound when the play occurred, thought Yeager had been shot too. He was so shocked he couldn’t move.
