    Umpire out of hospital after losing consciousness when struck by fastball
    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES -- An umpire who took a 96 mph fastball to the right side of his jaw was released from a hospital, hours after briefly losing consciousness when the pitch slammed into his face mask.

    Plate umpire Kerwin Danley was carried off the field in the fourth inning after a pitch from Dodgers right-hander Brad Penny knocked the crew chief to the ground.

    The game was stopped for 18 minutes while Danley was put into an ambulance and driven out through the center-field gate. The crowd of 50,469 applauded as Danley was placed into the ambulance.

    With Colorado's Garrett Atkins at bat, catcher Russell Martin said he missed the pitch because of a miscommunication with Penny. Martin said he apologized to Danley a couple of times, "But I don't know if he heard me." Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch said Danley lost consciousness briefly, but was conscious, coherent and breathing when he was placed into the ambulance.

    Dodgers medical personnel accompanied him to Good Samaritan Hospital, where officials said Sunday that Danley was treated in the emergency room and released.

    Scary stuff. I saw the vid last night on SportsCenter and just cringed. I wasn't sure I agreed with the base coaches wearing helmets when it was announced, but seeing that last night made me lean more towards favoring it. Better safe than cool.

    Sounds like Danley will be okay. Thank goodness.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I still have not had a look at the video. Anyone have a link yet?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Geeez... that was as scary as it gets. Good thing he didn't turn his head any further. Could have been another Coolbaugh tragedy.
