Umpire Cederstrom gets hit twice by pitches
Home plate umpire Gary Cederstrom was hit by a pair of pitches
from Texas starter Scott Feldman on Saturday night, but didn’t
appear to be seriously hurt by either one.
Cederstrom was hit on the bottom of his face mask and his chest
protector on a changeup by Feldman in the second inning. It
appeared Rangers catcher Matt Treanor didn’t expect the pitch and
never got his glove up in time.
Cederstrom was laughing immediately after the play as a
Milwaukee Brewers trainer briefly checked on him.
The next inning, Treanor missed a ball in the dirt and it hit
Cederstrom square in stomach, doubling him over. The 16-year
veteran and crew chief was smiling again with Treanor apparently
apologizing a second time.
