Brett Gardner and Rickie Weeks both had to leave Wednesday afternoon’s game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays after a violent collision at first base.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, with the score tied 3-3, Gardner grounded the ball back to Rays pitcher Xavier Cedeno. He tossed the it towards first base, where Weeks tried to dig the throw out of the dirt, but couldn’t. As the ball bounced away, Gardner collided with him and both men stayed down for an extended period of time.
Lets hope everyone is ok.
