There was a scary incident on Sunday afternoon during Game 2 of the NCAA Softball Tournament Super Regionals which was contested between the Missouri Tigers and UCLA Bruins.
After firing a pitch towards the plate, Missouri pitcher Tori Finucane was left with no time to react to a ball that was coming right at her head.
As a result, Finucane took the line drive off the bat of UCLA freshman Kylee Perez to the head and instantly collapsed to the ground.
Finucane was taken to the hospital for further evaluation.
#Mizzou's Tori Finucane is responding well to medics, but will be taken to a hospital for further evaluation. Thank you for your thoughts.

Let’s hope the injury is not as serious as it could have been.
