Skydiver Blindsides Shortstop, Crushes Him From Above
By Ashley Dunkak
DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – Most baseball players know they might at some time get drilled by a pitch.
They probably never consider the possibility of being drilled by a skydiver.
Mattingly Romanin of the Hannibal (Mo.) Cavemen found out the hard way that, as a minor league player, people falling out of the clouds is something he might need to consider in the future.
Still in disbelief that actually happened

If you’re worried about Romain, take heart in the knowledge the hit from above didn’t slow him down; He played the entire game. He later Tweeted to a fan that he suffered a “pretty good headache” and his neck was sore.
“It’s all fun and games until the skydiver takes out your starting shortstop,” one fan Tweeted.
