Hit with a Pitch - WARNING GRAPHIC!

Our son played in a baseball tournament this past weekend and was hit above the eye with a pitch; I won't give you all the details but to say - I'm traumatized! He's doing great; no concussion, he's very blessed...as are we!

I've made a slideshow of our pictures to date...enjoy but please know these pictures are graphic (no blood, just lots of swelling and bruising)!

Thanks for stopping by; take care! ~M.


  1. OMG! Michele, that poor boy. Looks the the ball got the best of him. Miss you tons dear, wish you were here :) Hugs and Loves,

  2. Oo, ouch! Yup, why is this a right of passage for ball players, but it seems to be . My DD as a teen on an A team was hit by a fastpitch softball so hard with a helmet on right there that it knocked her out and she had an eye and forehead like that. You think I could remain calm and nonchalant like all ball players moms are supposed to? Heck no. I was thinkin brain damage concussion the entire time, but they are tougher. He's probably proud of it, hehe. xoxo

  3. Those are wicked pictures. I'm proud of him but I know it hurt bad. Makes my stomach turn thinking of him getting hit and you having to watch that.


Thank you so much for visiting and taking time to leave me a note! I read every single one and *heart* hearing from you. Hugs, ~M.
