Following Tennessee’s 6-4 loss to the Jacksonville Suns on Thursday, manager Buddy Bailey addressed the status of Smokies right fielder Jae-Hoon Ha, who left the game with injury in the bottom of the fourth.
Ha was injured running into a side wall down the right field wall while sprinting towards a fly ball that went foul and into the seats. According to Bailey, Ha went head-first into a concrete part of the wall that was not protected by padding at the Baseball Grounds.
Ha was taken off the field on a stretcher and transported via ambulance to a Jacksonville hospital.
Bailey explains that Ha was responsive on the field, and outlines what is next for the Cubs prospect in this interview, which you can listen to by clicking the link below.
