This pretty bizarre scene unfolded during the first inning of yesterday’s Royals-Cardinals game in Kansas City. Following the second pitch of the inning, Cards’ catcher Yadier Molina attempted to throw the ball back to pitcher Michael Wacha but ended up drilling the Royals’ Norichika Aoki in the back of the head as he stood in the batter’s box.

Aoki was clearly shaken up but, fortunately, he wasn’t seriously injured and managed to stay in the game.
