I'm sure if you're a Royals fan, you saw second baseman Omar Infante get DRILLED in the CHIN by an 89 MPH fastball on Monday night. He went down right away, blood was everywhere and it seemed that everyone agreed that he would be out 2 months with a broken jaw or at the least, out 10 days with a concussion.
Fast forward to today, when Infante is (as of right now) in the ROYALS LINEUP tonight, just four days later! He will have to wear a batting helmet with a jaw pad and more than that, deal with the mental side of stepping in with a still severely bruised and aching jaw, and I'm sure, a battered brain, too. Infante is a brave man and here's to him staying healthy the rest of the year!
Glad you're a Royal, Omar!
Have a good weekend KC and let's hope the Royals can SWEEP the Twins this weekend!
