Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman was hit in the face with a line drive in a spring training game. After a 2 1/2 hour surgery to insert a titanium plate, reports are encouraging. He suffered a mild concussion, but with no other brain injuries, or injuries to his eyes. The best news is that it looks like he'll be able to resume his career, hopefully this year.
