Video: Oswalt Hit in Head With Line Drive, Leaves Game

Kyle Scott - March 23, 2011


Not good.

Roy Oswalt was just hit in the head with a line drive off the bat of Manny Ramirez. He was able to get up and walk off the field on his own.

According to the beat reporters, the ball hit him just behind right ear. He is being taken to a local hospital for X-rays. The official diagnosis from the Phillies is "bruised neck."

UPDATE: X-rays were negative and Brian Schneider will be driving Oswalt back to Clearwater. 

Watch it.

    Ball might have hit Oswalt in neck or off shoulder. If so, he’s lucky.

    My dad texted me that and I almost pissed myself. Fuck it, let’s forfeit all the spring training games and just make it to the season.

    Jesus Christ.

    Mikey Miss reported that he was hit behind the ear and is diagnosed with a bruised neck. Xrays to follow.

    Who is the color guy? I liked his “Oh shhhhhhh….” when Oswalt got hit.

    this is legitimately the first relevant post ever made on this shitblog.

  • JMLongy March 23, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    He’ll be fine; lets start the f’ing season already!

  • Sean Devlin March 23, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Looks like he’s okay. Skip his last spring training appearance for good measure though.

  • ThePhillyFlash March 23, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Yikes! That was frightening. I hope Oswalt will be okay.

    bri guy, this was the first place being linked to that had a video.
    otherwise, i do come here sometimes to see how jeff carter’s v-necks and cardigans somehow tie into him not being good enough.

  • Kyle Scott March 23, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    dude, i don’t know what you’re talking about- carter doesn’t wear many cardigans

  • Roo March 23, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    Are you kidding me..

  • Adam B March 23, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    @d…if this isn’t a worthy enough blog for you move on. There are plenty of readers that enjoy this site.

  • Greg March 23, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Looks like he’s gonna be fine. If anything, he looks pissed as hell that Dubee and Charlie pulled him from the game. If you pause the video near the very end when he looks back at Dubee, that expression tells the whole story.
    …Not the still frame that is legitimately terrifying. Lmao

    MLB moves quick, looks like the video’s been yoinked.

  • Sherry W March 23, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    I yelled “holy fucking shit NO!” at work when I was watching on my ipod. Yeah, I’m classy.

    “UPDATE: X-rays were negative and Brian Schneider will be driving Oswalt back to Clearwater.”
    Yup. O’Roy can just say it was a Manny-style hickey. I get the feeling he really didn’t get too fazed and was just lying down to enjoy the nice sunny 80 degree afternoon. What’s the weather like up there right now, Laddie?
