Ouch! The clip you are about to see was painful to watch! As someone who used to play fastpitch softball, I know just how uncomfortable it is to be hit with a line-drive. I can’t even imagine taking a ball to the face at 108 miles per hour!
Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray immediately hit the mound after being hit, and was then tended to for several long minutes before being escorted out of the game on Friday night. Ray reportedly waved to the St. Louis fans up in the stands, and they gave him a warm standing ovation.

Robbie Ray leaves the game in the 2nd inning after he was hit in the head by a 108 mph comebacker. Gave a thumbs up to the crowd on way out. pic.twitter.com/paHeCED8av

Yikes. Prayers for him to feel better soon!
