Cameraman who drew ‘V’ after being beaten up… ended up with an orbital fracture
A cameraman who was hit in the face by an infielder’s musical chairs during a major league baseball game was diagnosed with an orbital fracture.
US sports channel ‘YES Network’ said on July 7 (KST), “Cameraman Pete Standell, who was hit by a ball in the head, is resting at home after being diagnosed with an orbital fracture.” Standell was a cameraman in the first base dugout during a major league baseball game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium in New York City on June 6.
The dizzying moment came in the bottom of the fifth inning. Yankees batter Anthony Wolfe hit an infield grounder, and the Baltimore infield attempted a second-base-to-first-base double play.스포츠토토
Second baseman Adam Frazier caught the ball and fired to shortstop Gunner Henderson, who caught the ball and threw to first base. That’s when the bad pitch came. It sailed well off Nuh and went right over Standell’s head.
The medical staff immediately attended to Stendell. The game was stopped for about 17 minutes. Stendel was placed on a stretcher and taken to a vehicle. During the process, he made a “V” with his finger towards the crowd. It was a sign that he was okay. The crowd applauded and wished him a speedy recovery.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone watched Stendell get hit in the dugout on the home team’s first base side. “I was surprised to see it live, and I’m glad he’s recovering at home,” Boone said.
Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde also recalled the dizzying moment, saying, “It was scary.” Henderson, who threw the wrong pitch, said, “I pray that Stendell is okay. I’m thankful for everyone who came out to help him.”
