Archie Bradley meets 14-year-old in hospital also hit by liner on same day

Here’s a feel-good story that began with an unfortunate coincidence.

As his Arizona Diamondbacks play a series against the LA Dodgers, Archie Bradley stayed in Arizona to recover after he took a comebacker to his face earlier this week. Bradley also took the opportunity to make one young man’s day.

Bradley on Friday visited a 14-year-old named Nick at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Nick suffered Bradley’s fate, the same way, the same day.

It is pretty refreshing to see Bradley react so positively after a scary injury that cut into a successful start to his rookie season.
