Jays Happ Exits Game After Being Struck In Head

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ was struck on the side of the head in the second inning by a line drive off the bat of Desmond Jennings.  The ball ricocheted down the right field line and Jennings ended up with a 2-RBI triple. After an approximate 11-minute delay Happ was removed on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital.  No word as of yet on his condition.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
