I thought I’d update you on Brandon since I first wrote about him on Sept 7th. If you remember, he is the Oakland A’s baseball pitcher that threw a pitch, and Erik Aybar of the Los Angeles Angels hit it back to him, and unfortunately, it hit him in the head!! Talk about a pitcher’s worst nightmare. I guess he would be able to answer my post about your biggest fear, hands down, poor guy. He’s out of the hospital, and recently visited his ball team, showing off his scar.
I am a huge baseball fan. So it was so sad for me to hear that the Oakland A’s pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, was struck in the head by a line drive ball hit by the Angels (my favorite team) player Erick Aybar. Brandon is in the hospital and had brain surgery. I am praying for his recovery, and that everything goes okay for him. I can just imagine how Erick feels having hit the ball. But, the team of baseball, like all other huge groups, is a team of brothers. When one of them goes down, they all become one. It no longer matters what team your on, and whether you like the Oakland Athletics, or not. This is a great example of love, and caring for another person that is being demonstrated at this time. It warms my heart when I think about that. Please keep Brandon McCarthy in your thoughts this weekend please as a favor to me? Thanks!
