New York Yankees minor league manager, Rachel Balkovec, showed off her gnarly eye injury after being hit in the face with a batted ball at Spring Training...

Well I *DID* have several modeling contracts lined up, but this put a wrench in those plans ;)

Thanks for all of the messages- Just feeling extremely lucky, and also like I’ll never throw side flips again for the rest of eternity

This is why you have to life your life in a way that you’re okay leaving it at any moment. Not a minute to waste being, thinking or playing small.

Don Zimmer took a broken bat segment in the neck in the early 80's while coaching third base.

When they say keep your eye on the ball, this isn’t what they meant.

Considered me not shocked to see the first woman to work as a full-time manager of a major league-affiliated team to also be the first manager ever hit in the eye with a ball.

It has actually happened quite a few times over the years. One of the worst I remember was a Braves minor league coach getting hit so bad they had to remove the eye.
