File this one under weird injuries and be relieved that Chicago Cubs rookie Tyler Colvin is in stable condition and said to be doing okay after being briefly impaled by a broken bat during Sunday’s game against the Marlins. It’s a natural reaction to cringe and hold your breath when a broken bat goes flying during a baseball game and this is a perfect example of why. No need to watch this video if this kind of thing grosses you out, but it’s not as bad as it sounds.

You can tell by Colvin’s reaction he was more shaken up than anything when he saw he was bleeding. His rookie season is probably over and he’s being kept in the hospital for a couple of days, but it’s obviously fortunate it didn’t end worse than it did.
