Umpire Joe West hit in head by baseball from stands during Brewers-Marlins game
During tonight's Brewers-Marlins game, the game was stopped for several minutes during the fourth inning after umpire Joe West was hit in the head by a ball from the stands. The teams came off the field as the umpires spoke with security about the incident. There's no word about if the person who threw the ball was caught or not, but hopefully they will be. There's no reason to ever justify throwing a baseball at anyone, especially an umpire.
