A scary moment this afternoon on Field 4 where the Marlins were playing a sim game.
Giancarlo Stanton was hit on the helmet by a Jose Fernandez pitch during a simluated game.
You can see the video at the bottom of this page.
Stanton appeared to be OK as the fastball glanced off his helmet and he never lost his footing.
He left the game with trainer Mike Kozak in a golf cart but signed a few autographs while walking to the cart.
Fernandez, the Marlins’ top pitching prospect, was shaken up by the incident. He faced one more hitter and left the game, too.
Check back for an update on Stanton’s condition.
