2:44 PM: According to the team’s Twitter feed, Huff was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital. The good news is that he never lost consciousness and did not suffer any memory loss.

2:05 PM: David Huff was carted off the field on Saturday afternoon after being struck in the head by an Alex Rodriguez line-drive in the third inning, according to Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com.

The ball appeared to hit Huff on the left side of his head, just next to the Indians logo. Rodriguez was visibly disturbed once he realized Huff was hit by the ball rounding first base, putting his hands on his head and walking towards the mound. In a truly powerful moment, Huff gave a thumbs-up to the crowd as the cart drove off the field.

Let’s just hope everything is okay. We’ll pass along an update when we get it.

    so when are pitchers going to really start demanding some sort of head gear for protection? guys are stronger, bats are harder, but pitchers are still exposed.

    Say what you will about A Rod (and I’ve said a bit), but it is good to see that kind of emotion out of him. Nobody wants to hurt anyone in the game, and that has to be a scary moment for all involved. Here’s to a quick recovery.

    Come on, now…don’t be stupid…this isn’t T-Ball. Why not just wrap the whole team in bubble wrap?
