You’d think it would be too soon for a 2012 injury update, but we received one worth passing along regarding FAFIF reader Andrew Hees. His uncle Phil reports Andrew and his family were the passenger victims of a car accident on New Year’s Eve. Andrew, a devoted Mets fan with whom I had the pleasure of taking in a game just before he started high school this past September, was thrown from the vehicle and had to spend the first overnight of 2012 in the hospital for observation (or “the entire year,” as Andrew put it upon his release). Happily, no serious injury for him, though his younger brother Timothy went on the proverbial DL with a fractured elbow.
We wish all involved a speedy recovery in plenty of time for Pitchers & Catchers.
