George Springer Carted Off After Smashing Head Into Outfield Wall During Acrobatic Catch

Every time an outfielder tracks a ball to the outfield wall, there’s a small but not insignificant chance of something violent happening. Perhaps not quite on the scale of the outfielder in the baseball blooper reel from The Naked Gun, but danger is inherent anytime someone sprints toward a wall, especially if they can’t look at the wall because they’re tracking a flying object. Sometimes there’s a sweet catch; sometimes there’s a gnarly impact; sometimes there’s both.

Another tale concerning outfielders and one of their greatest nemeses.

Dodgers Dustin May struck in the head with a comebacker

There was a scary moment in yesterday’s Dodgers-Diamondbacks game.

Dodgers rookie Dustin May was pitching against the Snakes in the bottom of the fourth inning when Jake Lamb hit a hard line drive that smacked off May’s head and into left field. May immediately crumbled to the ground and stayed down for a few minutes before sitting up and, eventually, walking off the field.

Orioles Outfielder Bonked On The Head By Badly Misjudged Pop Fly

If you were looking for one single moment to represent the bottomless misery of the last, oh, two years of Orioles baseball, you could do a lot worse than D.J. Stewart’s ill-fated play on a fourth-inning fly ball in Tuesday’s game against the Yankees in Baltimore. Stewart, chugging in on the play, appeared to badly misjudge the ball’s trajectory, or brutally mistime his sliding attempt, or simply slip and fall—instead of making a heroic highlight catch, Stewart wiped out pretty badly and then had a baseball ricochet off the side of his head.

At this point, the Orioles seem to exist largely as a challenge to any potential satirists of baseball as conditions are now.
