Not sure if this belongs here. please move if it should be elsewhere
I came up to the plate with my team up 9-4 in the fifth inning. I worked the count full after fouling off the first 3 pithces, then on the 3-2, he threw me a curve ball that got away from him, I reacted wrong and took it right in the upper cheek to the right of my right eye. Amazingly, I was fine. I didnt hit the ground, I ate it. Now today I wake up and I have a bruise that looks like the stitching on a baseball on the side of my face.
Has anyone here ever been hit in the face by a pitch and not gotten hurt? Today I feel a little off and have had a slight headache all day. This is probably a stupid question as I should see a doctor and I plan on going toonigh, but do think I might have a concussion from it? Also, if I do, how long do you think I will have to be out, we only have a few games left and Im the ace of my pitching staff...my team really needs me to come up big down the stretch as we have a very good chance of getting a bye in the first round of the playoffs...we have the best record right now, but we are only one game better than the 2 teams behind us.
