There was a frightening moment in the ninth inning of the Royals’ 4-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Toronto’s Josh Donaldson was hit in the head by a pitch from Kelvin Herrera. Fortunately, it was a change-up*, but it hit Donaldson in the side of head.

*Not that a slower pitch made Donaldson feel better, I’m sure

Here is the play and one of the replays uses sound from the field and it’s scary:
