San Francisco Giants first base coach Roberto Kelly is on his way to hospital after being hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice, reports Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
A ball hit by Giants catcher Buster Posey struck Kelly and he stayed down for several minutes behind second base.
The report says Kelly likely has a concussion and will receive a standard CT scan when he gets to the hospital. Kelly is said to be alert and was helped off the field and put on a stretcher.
The Giants start their National League championship series tomorrow against the St. Louis Cardinals.
