Stephen Piscotty, a rookie outfielder of the St. Louis Cardinals, was taken off the field on a cart after a frightening collision with center fielder Peter Bourjos in the seventh inning of Monday night's game against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
After the horrific incident, the team announced on Twitter that Piscotty suffered a "head contusion" and was sent to a local hospital. Tests came back negative, but he was being kept overnight for observation.
Piscotty and Bourjos collided after chasing a fly ball deep in the left-center field gap. Piscotty dove in an attempt to catch the ball and slams his head and neck hard into Bourjos' knee — leaving him motionless near the warning track for several minutes.
Piscotty even managed a little wave with his left hand as he was being carted off the PNC Park field.My brother at the game sent this: pic.twitter.com/OAGmQwWuCT— Adam (@BigBurgher) September 29, 2015
