Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is still in the hospital this morning after getting hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals — a blow that left Chapman with broken bones in his nose, and above his left eye.

Here’s video, shot by a fan attending the game in Surprise, AZ:

Chapman never lost consciousness. He was taken off the field on a stretcher, and the game was cancelled with the Royals leading, 6-3.
