Injury Scout - Hallion Out in Anaheim After Hit to Head

HP Umpire Tom Hallion exited Tuesday's Brewers-Angels game in California following a second-inning foul ball to the head.

With two out, Angels batter Andrelton Simmons fouled a 2-0 90.8-mph fastball into Hallion's traditional-style facemask, knocking the mask to the ground; Hallion remained in the game for the next pitch, a force out to end the inning.

During the break, Hallion left the field and was replaced behind home plate by 2B Umpire Todd Tichenor, with 1B Umpire Phil Cuzzi and 3B Umpire Adam Hamari holding their positions in the field. Cuzzi served as acting crew chief.

Relevant Injury History: Hallion has a history of head injuries as a home plate umpire.
Hallion last left a July 24, 2018 game in Philadelphia after a foul ball off the facemask.
