Did you wonder where San Francisco Giants first-base coach Roberto Kelly was during Game 1 of the NL Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals? He was recovering from a line drive to the head by Giants catcher Buster Posey during batting practice.
Kelly sustained a concussion Saturday after getting hit in the back of the head while standing near second base.
As you can see in the video above, Kelly walked off the field with assistance. He was taken to a San Francisco hospital where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
“I saw him on the ground like everybody else, I didn't see it hit him,” Posey said. “Any time somebody gets hit in the head you're worried for them. He seemed to be doing all right. He was cognizant and answering questions. I think any time with a head injury it is scary because you just can't take anything for granted with that, and you have to be really, really careful.”
