Yoshitomo Tsutsugo collided into Takayuki Kajitani on a fly ball to right-center in the 1st inning of Wednesday's game against the Chunichi Dragons at Nagoya Dome.  Tsutsugo got tangled up with Kajitani and tumbled to the ground.  He struck the back of his head hard on the ground and was not conscious.  He was immobilized before being placed on a stretcher and loaded onto an ambulance.  Play was stopped for about eighteen minutes.

Tsutsugo was taken to a hospital in Naogya for tests.  He was diagnosed with a concussion and a cervical concussion.  He did regain consciousness and had movement in his hands and legs.  He will be given additional tests on Thursday.

You can view the replay at Youtube (not my upload).  Not sure how long it will stay up.
