Pitcher dies after being hit by a line drive

The 18-year old pitcher was hit in the side of the head by a line drive back up the middle. Its a terrible thing that I hope can be prevented in the future. My condolences goes out to this 18-year old's family and friends.

I was always sooo afraid of batted balls hitting me. Very sad.

Re: Pitcher dies after being hit by a line drive

That is a shame 18 dam i have two kids that pitch 12 and 10 .The weird thing is yesterday at my son's 12 year old allstar game he was pitching and a kid hit a shot back to the mound thank God he gloved it, i teach my kids to field there positionbut i know there are going to be times that they may not be able to react at times but at least i hope they can get a glove on it to at least slow it down

That is a shame. At least he died doing something he enjoyed. Still quite a tragedy though.

That really is sad. With all of these high tech bats out today the game has gotten so much more dangerous.

Re: Pitcher dies after being hit by a line drive

on friday one of my teammates almost got hit in the head. luckily he got his arm up enough and it hit is forearm. also last tuesday a kid on my team hit a bullet back to the mound. it hit the pitcher in the chest. but hit his arm first so it wasn't as fast.

that is a really sad thing. hopefully nothing like that happens to anyone who plays ball. nobody deserves to die on the playing field.
