Brandon McCarthy Takes Some Steps And May Leave Hospital Soon

Changes need to be made to protect baseball pitchers of all ages.

by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.

Most of us have learned about the horrific injury pitcher Brandon McCarthy of the Oakland A's sustained, when he was hit in the head with a line drive.  The good news is that now after brain surgery, he has taken a few steps and is expected to leave the hospital soon.  But what is being done to help insure that an injury like this doesn't happen again?

Line drives, such as the one McCarthy encountered, often come back at the pitcher at over 100 mph.  Even the most athletic of pitchers barely have enough time to get a glove on the ball, let alone catch it.  Over the years MLB has made changes that have worked against the pitchers and in favor of the batters.  These changes, such as lowering the height of the mound and changing the composition of the baseballs used, have made for more exciting hits and increased danger to the pitcher.
