Umpire Hit in Head by Broken Baseball Bat

Home plate umpire Jerry Layne was hit in the head by a broken bat during the Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds game, Friday night.

The incident took place in the 4th inning, when Cincinnati catcher Devin Mesoraco’s bat broke and the barrel struck Layne on the left side of his head, leaving him down for several minutes.

He was able to get to his feet and walk off the field under his own power, but will not be working the rest of the series.
