Chiba Lotte Marines: Yoshihiro Ito takes broken bat off left shin

by on Sep.02, 2011 @ 1:50 am, under NPB

Yoshihiro Ito took a broken bat off his left shin during Thursday night's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters (7th inning with Dai-Kang Yoh batting) and had to be carried off the field.  He was later taken to a hospital in Narashino, Chiba where he was diagnosed with a contusion and a contused wound on the inner portion of his left shin.  Since the team isn't sure how long it'll take for him to fully heal, they'll take things day-by-day for the time being.
