Last week it was reported that Ned Yost fell out of a tree on his property and broke his pelvis. The reports were very matter-of-fact like that, with the takeaway was that he was recovering in the hospital and would be fully recovered in time for spring training. It turns out, however, that his accident was far more serious than most assumed. Indeed, Yost could’ve very easily died.
Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com spoke to Yost, who is back home recuperating. He tweeted out the following from his conversation:
Thank goodness he had his cell phone with him and was able to get medical care in time.
