Aroldis Chapman Takes 110 MPH Line Drive to the Face
Posted March 20th, 2014 @ 10:23am

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman is apparently "doing better" after taking a 110 MPH line-drive to the face.

During a spring training game, Chapman threw a 99 MPH fastball to the Kansas City Royals' Salvador Perez.

Perez hit a line-drive that was clocked at 110 MPH.  It hit Chapman right in the face. The impact essentially broke Chapman's face.  He has fractures above his left eye.  Chapman never lost consciousness.

The game was cancelled.

 

Chapman's teammate Brandon Phillips tweeted that the pitcher was "doing better" in the hospital.
