Default Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez injured while in the on-deck circle

Took a foul ball off his foot from Jordan Pacheco in the bottom of the first and was lifted for a pitch hitter. X-rays negative.

Video not up on the main Rockies website, but it's in Gameday.

edit: video and story here:

That's not the strangest (to say nothing of life threatening) injury in an on-deck circle.

In the 70's, I think the Dodgers catcher Joe Ferguson (wore #13) was in the on-deck circle when the hitter before him had his bat shattered....a piece flew off and pierced his throat.

Could have killed him had it sliced his main blood vessels.
