Padres Pitcher Takes Shot To Face

Padres Pitcher Chris Young Takes A Line Drive To The Face:



SAN DIEGO -- Padres pitcher Chris Young left Wednesday's game in the third inning after being hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of St. Louis first baseman Albert Pujols.

Young was taken to Scripps Green Hospital in nearby Torrey Pines with a nasal fracture and a laceration on his nose.

Young sat on the ground for several minutes while being attended to by the team training staff and was able to walk off the field on his own, though he was accompanied by teammate Tony Clark and trainer Todd Hutcheson.


The sound of the ball hitting his face is excruciating...

The sound of the ball hitting his face was almost as loud as it hitting the bat. He's fortunate to have gotten by with only a broken nose.
