Indians and Yankees Celebrate Herb Score's Injury with Reenactment on David Huff's Face.
Shin-Soo Choo, while barely involved, is worked into story because of hysterical name.
The Indians and Yankees celebrated the 53rd anniversary of Cleveland's pitcher Herb Score's career-ending injury with a near-perfect reenactment this afternoon in New York.
On May 7, 1957, against the New York Yankees, Score was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Yankee Gil McDougald, breaking 14 bones in his face and leaving him unconscious and bloodied.
In the third inning of Saturday's game, Yankees shortstop Alex Rodriguez drilled a first-pitch changeup directly at pitcher David Huff. David Huff tried to spear the ball with his forehead, but was unsuccessful.
The ball bounced off his forehead with such force that it landed in shallow right field, where it was picked up by hilariously-named right fielder Shin-Soo Choo. Huff crumpled to the ground and lay face-down and motionless on the mound as training staff from both teams hurried to his aid.
Huff was to remain at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital for several hours for precautionary observation.
No word on the condition of the ball or Rodriguez's relationship with beard Cameron Diaz.
