    Default Umpire released from hospital after taking fastball to jaw

    I didn't see this but, damn. I know Brad can throw, but what was Martin thinking missing the ball that bad.

    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.

    Quotes from Martin say that he there was a mix up with a sign. I can see how this kind of thing can happen if the catcher thinks a curveball is coming and instead it's a 97 MPH Fastball.

    Glad to hear the ump is alright.

    Brutal. I'll tell ya, when I was a kid in little league I had a ball that went unobstructed into the gut at about 30 mph, and that put me DOWN. Mind you I was nine at the time.

    But still, Penny's fastball straight into the ump's jaw.....oh, man....

    Glad he's okay.
