Rickie Weeks and Brett Gardner were involved in the biggest collision I've ever seen at first base. Both players were knocked on their ass and both players had to leave the game.(Weeks received a penalty and was ejected for targeting).
I didn't see any head "contusions" listed after the incident. Which is a good thing, but they're probably going to be sore as shit today.
The blame for this falls on the Rays . They clearly didn't cover staying out of the base path with the converted first baseman.
Who said soft ass baseball wasn't a contact sport? Get ready for the MLB to overreact and cover first baseman in bubble wrap or something equally as dumb.
Here's why Brett Gardner and Rickie Weeks both had to leave early today. Nasty baseball collision. #Yankees #Rays pic.twitter.com/sHZ7lplB9v— Thad Brown (@thadbrown7) April 12, 2017
