Marlon Byrd

I don't know if you saw that pitch that hit Marlon Byrd in the face, but it was gruesome. (He's on the 15-day DL with multiple face fractures). I sure hope he's OK. That kind of an injury can affect his eyesight, which is an essential tool for a baseball player.

I'm betting that there were more than a few Boston fans in the stands that were instantly reminded of one of their heroes from about 40 years ago. I remember it well. They had a young star named Tony Conigliaro who also was hit in the face with a pitch. He was never the same after that.
