This happened at YS about 12-15 years ago during a night game.

The ump took a foul ball off the inside of the thigh which then rammed sort of sideways against the ol' cup. He went down with a loud groan, threw up, writhed on the ground, and eventually was carried off. I don't believe he ever appeared again in the ML. Ouch.

Anyone recall this?? Anyone know what happened to this umpire, and if he is now singing in the Vienna Boy's Choir?

I guess no one remembers. I just wondered if that ump was crippled for life.
