MLB Umpire Joe West Bloodied After Taking Bat To The Head, Leaves Game (VIDEO)

MLB umpire Joe West made headlines on Thursday, but this time it’s not over a very questionable call he made out on the field.

West could have sat out this season because of health concerns, but ultimately decided to take the field, saying “If this game hasn’t gotten me by now, no virus is going to get me.”

He’s probably regretting that decision after Toronto shortstop Bo Bichette accidentally clipped him on the side of the head with his bat.

West was bleeding profusely from his ear area and would be forced forced to go into the locker room for further treatment.
