Baseball: Pitcher in coma after getting hit in the head

A Northern California high school pitcher is in a medically-induced coma after getting hit in the head by a line drive. The incident is re-igniting the call to ban metal bats in youth baseball.
(Video from The Associated Press).

The Monterey Herald is reporting that pitcher Gunnar Sandberg was taken to the emergency room at the hospital where he was assessed overnight, and was put in a temporary coma last week because of swelling of the brain. He underwent several CT scans before medical personnel determined the course of action.

The Marin Independent Journal also has a story on its Website.

    Very traggic. Prayers for the young man’s recovery. I believe MC has plans to play in the National Classic down here in April. Hopeful he will be well enough to travel with his mates!

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
