Tyler Colvin impaled by broken bat

This has nothing to do with Japanese baseball, but I thought it freakish enough to warrant at least a mention.

Chicago Cub Tyler Colvin was standing near third base and was turning toward home when a piece of a broken bat pierced his chest and created a small hole.  Colvin was taken to the hospital and is currently in stable condition.  For those keeping score, Welington Castillo was up to bat and he was using a maple bat.
