VIDEO: Ump leaves game with injury after collision at first base

First base umpire Mike Dimuro had to leave Tuesday night's Orioles-Reds game (GameTracker) after a collision at first base. The speedy Billy Hamilton ran into him while legging out an infield single.

Here's the video:

Hamilton was ultimately fine and remained in the game. Dimuro could not continue, however. MLB has not yet released an update on his status.

I know Hamilton is a small guy physically, but he can fly, and when someone runs that fast, a collision like that can do some serious damage. Hopefully Dimuro is okay.
