Javier Baez is known for his crafty slides and attempting to do whatever he can to help his team win. Sometimes, though, his ballsy moves leave Cubs fans feeling breathless.
That’s what happened during Sunday’s game against the Braves, when Baez slid headfirst into second base on a pickup attempt. Unfortunately, his head collided with Ozzie Albies’ knee, which looked really scary at first glance.
Baez attempted to tough it out and tried to remain in the game at first, but had to leave soon after.
He did not enter the concussion protocol, however, which is good news going forward.
Good news for Baez, who seems to be OK after initially being quite shaken up from the nasty collision.
