Alex Cobb Taken Off Field After Hit by Ball
I have never been one to overly complain about how much professional athletes get paid. A major reason is the physical punishment they take. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb was taken off the field on a stretcher. Cobb was hit in the head by a line drive ball off the bat of Eric Hosmer. Jonah Keri of Baseball Tonight tweeted this.
Velocity of ball hit by Eric Hosmer that struck Alex Cobb in the head: 102.4 mph.I hope for Cobb to have a speedy and healthy recovery. Update: the Tampa Bay Rays sent out this tweet.
Alex Cobb was diagnosed with a mild concussion. All tests came back normal. We thank you all for your thoughts & continued support.
