Hernandez says Koufax was conscious and smiling as the trainers took him inside for medical attention. The Dodgers have not yet released any other information.
Koufax, 78, is a regular at Dodgers' spring training after spending his entire 12-year playing career with the organization. The seems like he avoided a major injury but a ball to the head is always scary. We wish him the best as we await an official update.
