It finally happened: Broken Bat Impales Player (Video) Tyler Colvin of the Chicago Cubs was impaled by a broken bat in the bottom of the 2nd inning. Chicago Cubs outfielder Tyler Colvin has been transported to a Miami hospital after being struck in the chest by a piece of a bat. Colvin was standing on third base in the second inning when part of Welington Castillo's bat punctured his chest during Sunday's game against the Florida Marlins. Castillo doubled on the play and Colvin scored, but was replaced in the field in the bottom half. A spokesman for the Cubs says Colvin is in stable condition and there was minimal external bleeding. I have watched the video, the bottom barrel end of the below shattered bat, stuck in Colvin's chest for a brief/split second as he was coming down the 3rd base line toward home plate, then it dislodged and fell to the ground, as Colvin paused, then continued toward the plate to score a run.
