    Skydiver takes out shortstop

    HANNIBAL, Mo. — A player in a collegiate summer league will miss the rest of the season after being kicked in the face by a skydiver during a pre-game show in Missouri.

    Shortstop Mattingly Romanin and his Hannibal Cavemen teammates were on the field, about to play the Terre Haute Rex on Saturday, when three skydivers dropped onto Clemens Field, a historic ballpark in Mark Twain’s boyhood home of Hannibal, Mo.

    Video posted on YouTube showed one of the divers veering too close to Romanin, who was knocked over. He eventually played all nine innings in Hannibal’s 7-3 loss.

    Romanin had headaches, and a doctor on Monday determined he had a concussion. After consulting with his coach at Chicago State University, he decided to shut down for the season.
