    Chapman will have a plate inserted in his skull and is expected to be back in at least a month.

    Here's a link discussing the perspective of the players and the decision to stop the game:

    There is also the fact that this is Spring Training where the outcome of the game doesn't count.

    Very good points. Another article says there was discussion among the two couches and I think the head ump...they may have reached the same conclusions.

    Yeah, and I think that's a big part of the picture --- how could he go on playing knowing he might have caused blindness / death / who knows?

    I think this one looked too much like possible permanent brain damage -- as fast as the ball is thrown, and coming right back in a line drive to the noggin.... I think they were erring on the side of caution.

    On the one hand, it wasn't an official game so to speak. On the other hand, they are professionals. Sign of the times?
    Eh... I think it was a cooperative thing between the two teams.... baseball is played with heart --- kinda hard to continue a game like that, but, maybe I'm just getting soft in my old age.

    Wow

    I'm normally a "show must go on" kind of guy, but, yeah, they needed to stop that game.
