Atlanta Braves catcher Tyler Flowers was accidentally hit by a bat in Wednesday night’s game against the New York Mets.
The Braves and Mets were in the seventh inning and Pete Alonso at bat. Mets rookie Pete Alonzo hit the ball hard, causing Tyler Flowers to hit the head.
Alonso immediately apologized for the swing. But Flowers was feeling the effects of it.
