In an incredibly scary moment, Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward melted down to the dirt after being hit by a pitch in what looks like the ear/back of the head area.

There are no reports as to the extent of any potential injuries, and there won’t be until he has been x-rayed by team medical personnel. Here’s hoping the 90 mile per hour fastball caught most of the earpad and Heyward was simply dazed.
