Shortstop and Skydiver Collide

The Hannibal Cavemen are a summer collegiate baseball team that plays in Missouri, made up of mostly college players looking to hone their skills. Mattingly Romanin is a sophomore at Chicago State University and plays shortstop for the Cavemen. He also has the distinction of sustaining an injury that had nothing to do with playing baseball.

During warm-ups, part of the entertainment for the crowd was a skydiver parachuting onto the field. The skydiver couldn’t control his landing and no one gave Romanin a heads-up, the skydiver landed directly on the shortstop. At first he said he was a little sore from the incident but after doctors examined him it was found he has sustained a concussion and will miss the rest of the season.
