Home Plate Umpire Kerwin Danley Appeared To Get Knocked Unconscious By Foul Ball (VIDEO)
A frightening situation went down last night during the Giants-Rockies game at Oracle Park when home-plate umpire Kerwin Danley appeared to be knocked unconscious after a foul ball off Sam Hilliard’s bat clipped him in the mask.
The 59-year-old took the hit and then collapsed to the ground as several trainers immediately rushed the field to check on him.
Danley was helped to his feet several minutes later and was able to walk off the field. He has a history of concussions.
Play resumed as Ryan Additon assumed the home-plate umpire position.
