    Can`t link the video? Ugh! Sorry.

    Try This Page From the Blue Jays Official Page!

    He may get out of hospital today! That`s about the only news. However, that doesn`t mean he`s A-OK, he might have a host of problems... or he just might be `ok` (let`s hope so!)

    Yeah, slightly mislabeled video.

    He got smacked, but not knocked out. I feel badly for the batter even though it`s not like he did it on purpose.

    @Nashman19: NO! I just pick random videos and link them...

    I watched it on TouTube, duh! Unless you mean did @FancyLad (or @The_Mods) watch it to see if it would show up? That I don`t know, but click it and !Presto! you`re watching it...

    The Blue Jay page came out this morning.

    misslabeld? he was clearly knockt out, if a man cant walk he is out. also, it may be knocked out of the game.
    All people do here is nit picking, or so it seems.

    Nit Pickers! Ack!

    There`s KO (unmoving, not awake)
    Then there`s TKO (semi conscious, seeing birdies circling around your head).

    I`m pretty sure he`s either KO (for a few seconds) or TKO for a minute or so. Or both!

    @5cats

    No No NO.

    K.O = knocked unconsious. lights out, game over.
    TKO = technical knock out, is where a referee decides that a match is off due to one of the fighters not bieng able to hmm: "safely defend him/herself"

    I will grant you that nowaday`s knock out is used more lightly, i.e. bieng out for the count is considerd a knockout, you could just be exhausted and not be able to get up. technically though, K.O. = lights out, nobody home.

    Bud Selig reportedly fined the pitcher for taking too much time between pitches after this. Gotta keep the game moving, Bud.

    @MrOrange: I was going to say something like "had his bell rung" but give the possible seriousness of the situation (and terrifying video!) I just said "knocked out" instead.

    Had his bell rung covers anything from KO, TKO to "ouch that hurt!". It depends how loud the "ding" is, eh?

    In boxing? A KO, a TKO and opponent being counted out all are scored as "A Win by Knockout".

    @Naz14: Yeah! Some YouTube commenter said he "was smiling" but I sure didn`t see that. The guy looked to be on the verge of tears, as did several players on both teams.

    @fancythat: Rulez is rulez! ;-)

    UPDATE: He`s out of hospital! He`s looking OK! But the danger of concussion is still very real.
    Best possible news!

    Also: Yeah, he wasn`t "knocked out" after all. Geez! But I bet he saw little birdies!!



    Close enough!

    That was only slightly less boring than watching them play baseball.

    Update #2 Video and article!

    From the Blue Jay page.

    He`s OK! No concussion. A minor crack in the skull and some stitches :-)

    *phew!*

    Pitchers don`t wear helmets Tupinambis, nor should they.

    Get your glove up!

    He forgot that as soon as he releases the pitch, he`s a fielder.

    Pitchers wearing helmets? What`s next? Should everyone on the field have full body armor on? Sh.i.t like this happens people, it`s a sport, getting hit with a baseball is part of the territory. You don`t want to get hurt, play wiffle-ball.

    May 25 UPDATE: Happ`s head is OK! No concussion, the damage is gone. :-)

    However, he fell on his knee while KO`d and that injury needs another month...

    Better a knee boo-boo than a brain boo-boo, eh?
