SJ - April 4, 2021

It all started after a foul ball ricocheted off of the catcher's leg and caught umpire C.B. Bucknor in the neck.  He needed some attention from the trainers who ran onto the field to check him out.

One of those trainers needed some help himself after he collapsed while examining Bucknor.

Not sure why everyone is scared of everything.  I certainly wouldn't describe what went down as scary.  It's more bizarre than anything.

People collapse sometimes.  He got up and walked off the field.  Bucknor shook off the ball to the throat, the world continued spinning and the two teams finished the game.
