An MLB umpire was struck in the face with a baseball in an errant throw during Monday night's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets.
Video from the incident at New York's Citi Field shows first base umpire Junior Valentine being hit by a ball on his cheekbone.
Cardinals short stop Edmundo Sosa had thrown the ball, which was originally meant for first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.
Despite being bloodied in the incident, Valentine wasn't seriously hurt and managed to continue umpiring the game.
"Junior is doing well," crew chief Jerry Meals told MLB.com. "He's been checked out and has no broken bones. He was incredibly alert from the get-go. The blood seemed to stop fairly quickly, thankfully, and he was adamant that he was fine."
