    Heard he had to get 11 stitches above his nose ( i guess his brow), a concussion, and some swelling that prevented him from opening one of his eyes. Good news was he was at the game this morning giving the umps the lineup before the game. Got a pretty good round of applause afterwards too. That was one of the loudest beanings ive ever witnessed. I was sitting at the end of the 3rd base bleachers and i said it had to have hit his helmet cause if that noise was his face he'd be unconscious or worse. It was that loud. Glad to see hes up and around.

    We had someone hit like that a few years back. Can't remember who but it hit the brim of the batting helmet broket it and deflected and hit his face. Bad bruise and swelling. Hard to imagine him taking it straight on.

    3) Alvarez was pitching from the windup (not the stretch), allowing Fontenot a huge jump.
    4) On the wild pitch (ball four) that got past the catcher, Fuselier did not need to hustle in for the score as it was a bases loaded walk. But he was moving on the pitch and fortunately Fontenot did not run up Fuselier's back-side (risking Fontenot passing him on the play). Passing Fuselier would have been a disaster.
    5) Fontenot slides into home on a bang-bang play. I wonder if the ump even realized that there was a second Cajun runner attempting to score on the play ... as Fuselier and Fontenot were clustered together. He seemed a bit confused on the play.

    Fontenot scoring not only gives the Cajuns the lead, but paves the way for a third run on a subsequent single.

    From the view I had from behind home plate the ball seemed to either hit Marvel or hit his bat. Everyone around me was completely surprised that it wasn't called an HBP or a foul ball. So it was ruled ball 4 and a passed ball. Hell, one of our runners never touched the plate, probably Fuselier. The ump behind the plate was utterly clueless. His strike zone was pretty strange and his calls were just dumbfounding. Ump at first was just as bad. Typical weekend in the Belt. Subpar calls.

    This goes a little further back. But I remember Kevin McDonald hitting an Arkansas player (in the jaw?) at the Dixie College Classic in Shreveport (1989). There was much blood at home plate.

    Actually I just watched the replay of that crazy play on katc news and I slowed it down on my dvr, and fuselier clearly touches homeplate just half a second before fontenot slides into the plate as well. Now, whether or not the ball glanced off of marvel (or his bat) is a different issue, VERY hard to tell either way. But ump was staring right at marvel when it happened and he quickly backs away from plate when fuse and fontenot come in (and he was looking at the play the whole time) so I think the right call was made for both runs to score. Thank you for capabilities of a dvr, wouldnt imagine life without one!
    But, very weird play overall. Lol

    The ump behind the plate was close to the action most of the game and had no clue what was going on. It was a mad minute, but with Mister Magoo making the calls behind the plate it only made the situation that much more insane.

    all im saying is that with my dvr on slow-motion, and with the KATC camera zoomed in on that exact play, both of our players actually touched the plate. So, there was no question about the runners both touching home plate. But I would say it was hard to tell about what the pitch did to marvel or his bat.

    I'm sure he did. He was just strewn to the side quickly when Fontenot came in right after him. Bang bang play. BOP......did the ball hit Lance or did it hit Lance's bat or none of the above?

    Alex Preciado. Had his mouth wired shut for a good part of his senior year. He was a big part of the turn around during that season (2006) as an emotional leader and then a physical leader when he got back on the field.

    I understood it tipped the catchers glove.
