  • 2019: Won the fight

Umpire Larry Vanover is being evaluated for a concussion and other injuries at a hospital after being struck in the head with a relay throw during Wednesday’s game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Guardians.

The 67-year-old Vanover was knocked down by the throw from Guardians All-Star second baseman Andrés Giménez, who wheeled and fired toward the plate and hit Vanover, positioned on the infield grass between second and the mound, on the left side of his head.

Major League Baseball said Vanover said is being checked for a head injury “and other potential medical issues. The timeline on his return is to be determined.”

Yikes. I wonder if they'll be wearing helmets soon as well.
