Unbelievable play! Unfortunately he broke his nose on the play. He's having surgery today.

Yeah, he requested padding out there a while ago. They have it already, just haven't put it in yet....whoops.

Here's the replay if you missed it.

:bang: then :redface:

I believe that play is scrappy.

I believe that the Phillies need to go over to the South Philadelphia Home Depot and buy some padding.

What was that, Chicken wire in Centerfield?

They added extra padding in Chicago last year because of his habit of taking on walls at full speed. I guess he wouldn't want to play in Wrigley.

Apparently Rowand also broke his eye socket.

I'm not sure I even knew this was possible. Ow. Ow. Ow.

Didn't that happen to Sean Casey early in his Reds career? Think it was on a throw from Damian Jackson during a pre-game drill or something...

Oddly enough, the Phillies apparently ordered padding and received it last Tuesday. They were planning on installing it this weekend while the team was away.

A bunch of buddies and I were playing baseball, and one of them got hit in the face with a ball and the same thing happened. Broken nose and broken eye socket, they say it might be perminent damage (formy buddy, not Rowand)
