Get Well Soon, Stump!

Posted by Mark McCray |

Yankees special assistant to the general manager, Stump Merrill, was taken to a hospital after being hit just above the lip by a thrown ball during batting practice before Wednesday's game against Tampa Bay.

Merrill was collecting balls near a screen behind second base when he was struck by a ball thrown from the outfield. He was taken off the field on a stretcher.

The Yankees said Merrill was conscious and alert.
