| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks


St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Blake Hawksworth took a line drive off the bat of the Cubs' Sam Fuld to the face at Wrigley Field this afternoon. 

He remained on the ground for several minutes before rising with a towel held over his mouth and was taken to the hospital.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, who had already been ejected from the game, came back on the field to check on his injured player.

Any word on how bad the injury was? There seemed to be a good deal of blood but no way to tell if he lost teeth or just split his lip.

I can't tolerate this kind of mater.How it happen.
