Don Baylor fractures femur while receiving first pitch, set for surgery
Vladimir Guerrero threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Angels' opener, and it didn't go well for Don Baylor.
Not long after signing a one-day contract that allowed him to retire with the Angels, Vladimir Guerrero tossed out the ceremonial first pitch before the team's opener. Angels batting coach Don Baylor was tasked with receiving that first pitch, and unfortunately Baylor was injured while doing so:

Guerrero, after making his toss, seemed to think Baylor was joking around. After he helped Baylor to his feet, though, it became clear that that 64-year-old former MVP was indeed hurt ...
Here's hoping for a successful surgery and speedy recovery for Mr. Baylor.
