Last month, Angels starter Matt Shoemaker was hit in the head by a line drive hit by Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager. He suffered a fractured skull and a hematoma, requiring emergency surgery. Fortunately, Shoemaker is recovering and sounds eager to return to the mound.

Good Morning America did a segment on Shoemaker last week. After the line drive incident, several equipment companies are manufacturing specialized helmets for pitchers.
