Holy God, am I glad I didn't see that live.
Can you imagine the heart attack you woulda had, seeing New Cubs Stud Pitcher Matt Garza get hit by a screaming line drive off Jeff Francouer?
In the lower back/ribs area?
And then, "falling to his knees in pain"?
I'da rolled off the couch and dry heaved a couple fur balls on the floor.
What year was it when Sandberg got hit on the hand in Spring Ball?
Early 90' somethin?
Back before baseball was sooo... publicized.
If you weren't reading the Sports Page fine print, you didn't know a game was even being televised.
I wasn't home. We were shooting a commercial, and it was the weekend and I went to a restaurant for lunch at some beachy place, and they had a bar upstairs that looked at the ocean. They had a tv up there, and I heard...the Cubs coming on!
Had no idea.
I hauled upstairs and before I could even settle in, Sandberg's hand was busted.
Had to leave my burger.
Anyway, apparently nothing bad happened to Garza except probably a bruise.
SO glad I didn't see it.
And of course, that said, the Cubs are on tomorrow.
