Stone Crabs pitching coach hit in head with liner, expected to be okay



Class-A Charlotte pitching coach Bill Moloney was struck in the forehead with a foul ball during Wednesday's game against Bradenton, and went to the hospital as a precaution, manager Brady Williams said.


Moloney was in the back of the dugout talking to a pitcher when he was hit by the liner, but got up on his own, stayed the rest of the game and is expected to be okay, Williams said.

"Obviously he wasn't himself, but he was still grouchy as always, which is normal," Williams said. "That was scary. Honestly I'm glad it hit him in the forehead, because if it hits him anywhere else, who knows what happens?"
