Video of David Huff Hit by a Line-Drive from Alex Rodriguez


Cleveland Indians lefty David Huff was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and the ball ricocheted all the way to the right field corner.

The hit caused both teams and a full stadium worth of fans to hush as Huff was dealt with. He was loaded on to a stretcher and taken off the field. He gave the fans a thumbs up as he was carted off to a loud ovation. Huff was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center where he is woozy, but in otherwise good shape. A CT Scan was negative.

After the game A-Rod raced over to the hospital to make sure that the pitcher was OK.

It was a very scary moment for everyone involved. It’s great to hear that Huff is not more seriously injured.

    Scary. Lots of us old-time Yankees fans remember (or in my case, read about) May 7, 1957 (5/7/57) when Gil McDougald’s liner at the original Stadium struck Herb Score in the face.

    For those of you who never heard of Score, or know of him only as a long-time Indians broadcaster (Score has passed away), in 1955 and 1956, he was this good: think of Dwight Gooden 1984 and 1985. Also think this: Score could have been Koufax before Koufax. Yes, THAT good.

    After McDougald hit Score in the face with a line drive, Score was never the same.
