Baseball Player Gets Hit In Jaw With Pitch [Video]

Last night (April 7), Kansas City Royals infielder Omar Infante walked up to the plate expecting to get a hit.

In the blink of an eye, one of the scariest moments occurred for a baseball player. A pitch went too far inside, hitting Infante’s face and leaving his face bloodied as he laid on the ground.

According to pitcher Heath Bell to MLB.com, he was trying to throw a sinker and the pitch got away from him. He added that his “prayers go out to him.”

The good news is Infante doesn’t have a concussion and will be evaluated over the next 48 hours.

Check out footage of the pitch below.
