LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Braves minor league manager Luis Salazar regained consciousness and was breathing on his own Wednesday afternoon, after being hit in the face by a foul ball during Atlanta’s 6-1 Grapefruit League loss to St. Louis.
Salazar, 54, was hit by a line drive off the bat of Braves catcher Brian McCann while standing in the dugout in the first inning of a game at Champion Stadium. He was unconscious for at least 20 minutes, and some players and others in the dugout feared he was dead.
He has multiple facial fractures and possible damage to his left eye, but doctors have ruled out brain damage, said a Braves spokesman. Salazary was able to answer doctors’ questions and was resting Wednesday night at Orlando Regional Medical Center, accompanied by his wife, Graciela, son Carlos, and by McCann. >>>
