Nick Franklin hit by baseball bat


Story.

No immediate details given on Franklin's health.  Reading the details of the accident contained in the story conjure up all kinds of horrid nightmare scenarios.  I just hope the kid is okay.  I'm reminded of the scene in Major League where a flying bat hits Eddie Harris in the back of the head.  And now I wonder if Nick might have stolen Jobu's rum.

Some details now:  The bat, belonging to fellow AA Jacksonville player and Mariner prospect Rich Poythress, has been put down for attacking a top 50 prospect.  The last words of the bat were reported to have been "well, at least I got to hit something".
