Reds Pitcher Chapman Hit In Face By Line Drive

Posted: Updated:

There were scary moments during a Cincinnati Reds spring training game when a pitcher got hurt.

Watch this. The batter hits a 99-mph fastball right up the middle, nailing Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman in the face.

You can see Chapman drop to the ground as players, coaches and trainers rush to help him.

Even Chapman's father, who was in the stands, rushed to the field.

Chapman didn't lose consciousness but was taken off the field in a stretcher.

He suffered fractures above his left eye and nose.

Both teams met after Chapman left the field and decided not to continue the game.
