Blue Jays fans have had their fair share of unfortunate moments this season, but the scariest one of them all took place Tuesday night in Tampa Bay.
Toronto starter J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Desmond Jennings in the bottom of the third inning. The ball appeared to ricochet off the side of Happ’s head and into right field. Jennings ended up on third base as a result of the play, with Jose Molina and Yunel Escobar scoring.
Happ, visibly bleeding after the play, was loaded onto a stretcher, immobilized and taken away by paramedics, but he appeared to be conscious as he left the field and waved to fans on his way out.
