1:31 PM PT — The Norfolk Tides just announced the Friday night game against the Durham Bulls has been postponed in wake of Zombro’s injury.
“The decision to postpone tonight’s contest comes after Thursday night’s incident involving Durham pitcher Tyler Zombro being struck by a batted ball,” the Tides said in a statement.
The team added that no makeup date for the game has been set yet.
A Tampa Bay Rays prospect was hit so hard in the head by a line drive Thursday, he began convulsing on the mound … and the scene was absolutely horrifying.
Tyler Zombro was pitching for the Rays’ Triple-A affiliate, the Durham Bulls, when the tragedy struck … and the Bulls say the 26-year-old has since been hospitalized.
Tyler Zombro recibió una línea en la cabeza en el juego de anoche que obligó a suspender el partido contra los Norfolk Tides, es un relevista de 26 años que aún no ha debutado en las Grandes Ligas. Fue llevado a un hospital cercano. Aún no se conocen detalles de su condición.🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/2dnVjH1NFI
