Atlanta Braves’ Tim Hudson Suffers Grisly Ankle Injury on Field
Tim Hudson, pitcher for the Atlanta Braves, suffered a gruesome injury at first base on Wednesday during a game against the Mets.
The injury occurred when Eric Young Jr., left fielder for the Mets, hit a ground ball, which bounced off the first baseman’s chest and away. Hudson left the pitcher's mound and ran to cover first base. He beat Young to the base and turned around to catch the ball. As soon as he caught the ball, the collision occurred. Young, attempting to tag the base, accidentally stepped on Hudson’s right ankle, breaking the bone. The video of the event is difficult to watch.
Hudson immediately went the ground and had to be taken off the field by paramedics. Unfortunately for the Braves, this broken ankle means the end of Hudson’s season. Luckily, the Braves have another starting pitcher who is about to return to the game after an injury absence, Brandon Beachy. So Beachy can step in and take Hudson’s place.
