VIDEO: Aroldis Chapman Hit by Line Drive

You’re going to be seeing a lot of posts about the terrible, terrible Aroldis Chapman injury from Wednesday and, thankfully, there isn't clean video of the Cincinnati Reds pitcher being hit in the head has yet to surface.

That said, there is this.

And, because everyone is recording everything…there's this video of Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez at the plate and, subsequently, audio of the injury. I’m told this is legit.

Now, if you’re curious about how quickly that all transpired. FOX19 sports anchor Joe Danneman breaks it down.

And just how fast is that?


UPDATE: Chapman spent the night at a Phoenix hospital, where tests showed he suffered fractures above his left eye and nose.  Reports are that the pitcher never lost consciousness.
