CHICAGO (AP) -White Sox catcher Toby Hall was forced to leave in the sixth inning of Tuesday night's game against Detroit when he was apparently hit in the neck with the backswing of Carlos Guillen's bat.
Hall stayed at the plate for several minutes while he was attended to by trainer Herm Schneider, who then had to help him into the dugout and clubhouse. Hall looked dazed as he left the field. He was replaced by A.J. Pierzynski.
It was the second time this season Hall had to leave a game after being hit with a backswing. He was also forced out of a game last month against Florida when Dan Uggla's backswing hit him in the head. Hall was also treated for flu-like symptoms that night.
