Angels coach breaks leg while catching ceremonial first pitch
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Los Angeles Angels hitting coach Don Baylor broke his right leg while catching Vladimir Guerrero’s ceremonial first pitch on Monday night.
Baylor was unable to standup when his right leg bent awkardly beneath him. Guerrero had to help him up.
Baylor, who joined the team in the offseason, had to be helped off the field after the injury. He is scheduled to have surgery on his right femur on Tuesday.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Don right now,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “Obviously it’s a freak (injury). We’ll see how it turns out.”
