JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Tennessee Smokies outfielder Jae-Hoon Ha was injured chasing a foul ball down the right field line during Tennessee’s Thursday night contest against the Jacksonville Suns at the Baseball Grounds.
Ha ran into a side-wall down the right field wall near the corner and would be taken off the field in a stretcher before he was taken by ambulance to a Jacksonville hospital.
Ha was reportedly responsive and talking with Smokies staff and medical personnel before he left the playing field on a stretcher.
We will have more updates throughout the night on this situation, along with reaction from Smokies manager Buddy Bailey during tonight’s Tenth Inning Wrap Up Show.
