Sandy Koufax Hit In Head By Line Drive At Dodgers Spring Training

A pretty scary scene at Dodgers spring training this morning: Legendary pitcher Sandy Koufax, who pops in during the spring to help out from time to time, was watching Clayton Kershaw throw when he got struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Andre Ethier.

Koufax will reportedly be all right, but there was blood, and he did have to be driven away on a golf cart with a towel pressed to his head.

Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times got a snap of Koufax being driven off.

The 78-year-old Koufax reportedly did not even go down after being hit by the line drive. Afterward he was seen smiling and laughing. Yup, that’s meme-worthy…


All joking aside, Andre Ethier, wow man you are lucky. You came this close to killing Sandy Koufax.

That would’ve straightened out that whole outfield log jam in a hurry. Cause Ethier would have been shipped to Siberia.
