This is already somewhat old news, but nonetheless, very distressing to hear.
At about 5:40pm on Friday, at Mazda Stadium, Takuya Kimura suddenly collapsed while hitting grounders during pre-game situational fielding practice.
I was watching footage of it on TV and it was actually kind of freaky. Kimura was just lying on the ground with this glazed look on his face. And at one point, it seems his heart also stopped beating -- they started chest compressions and even brought out an AED device.
Based on the latest news update that I saw, Kimura has been hospitalized and is still unconscious.
