VIDEO: Ump Kerwin Danley Takes Fastball To Jaw

The second scary moment of the day, and the second scary moment for an umpire this month.

Here’s Vin Scully’s call and the video of umpire Kerwin Danley taking a 96-mph Brad Penny fastball to the jaw….

Here’s hoping he’s okay.

Early word from Baseball Tonight is he was coherent, conscious and breathing and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital with his wife for “precautionary reasons.”

    Scary stuff man. I used to umpire little league, and taking one square in the mask would have you seeing stars. God bless all umpires.

  2. Luke says:


    How does a major league catcher of Russell Martin’s caliber let that one get away. It wasn’t wild. 96 mph is fast but this ball was way inside Russell’s zone. The dangers of the trade I guess. We are praying for Kerwin Danley.

    At first the play-by-play guy sees the ball in the dirt. Was he even watching the game?

    I thought the umpire was supposed to be the blind one.

    How do you call him the “play by play guy”, its Vin Scully for Gods sake. Was he even watching the game????…he has been the only 1 man booth for about a hundred years, buy far the most experienced and greatest picture painter in the booth……….
    at least your not commenting on something you know knothing about. At least you got to see the ump get hit…gawker

    Vin Scully is an icon. God forbid a member in your family starts to lose it a little.

    I’m so glad Vin Scully is not an umpire. “…in the dirt…” ????

    Vin Scully is on a delay. His voice is several seconds behind the actual event. Thank the FCC for that…
    Plus the time it takes to get the actual facts up to where he is sitting. He was at a bad angle (directly behind the catcher) and was trying to make a guess at what happened for the audience watching and listening on the radio before the facts got to him

  8. Jay says:

    So I guess you didn’t watch the video Muels.

  9. dan says:

    Russell Martin said later that he called for a curve and that’s what he was expecting. So that’s why he missed it he setting up for a ball in the dirt.

  10. Ron says:

    Martin ducked away from the pitch and dropped his glove. I’ve umpired for 27 years. That was intentional. It happens all the time. He should have hit him in the chest protector, and missed. But that was intentional.

    Martin should have been ejected.

  11. Jeff says:


    You are an idiot. Did you watch the video? Martin was set up low and away expecting a curveball. If you actually watch the video you can see Martin make an attempt to catch the ball, but when you are expecting an 75 mph curve and you get a 96 mph fastball it is hard to react quick enough, any real umpire would know this. He ducked his head out of the way at the last second because he didn’t want to get crushed in the side of it. I watch a lot of baseball and was a catcher for years and this type of thing rarely happens.

    What do you umpire, girls softball I hope!!! You should be ejected from the internets…….
