Injury Scout - Conroy Hit in Hand, Returns

After HP Umpire Chris Conroy was hit in the hand by a foul ball, he briefly left his game in Cincinnati, only to return as the third base umpire.

In the bottom of the 1st inning of the Royals-Reds game, Reds batter Shogo Akiyama fouled a 2-1 sinker from Royals pitcher Brad Keller into Conroy's right ring finger, drawing blood as Conroy left the game, replaced behind home plate by 2B Umpire Jeff Nelson.

1B Umpire Larry Vanover and 3B Umpire CB Bucknor officiated the field in a three-person alignment until Conroy, who reportedly suffered a fractured finger, returned in the 4th inning as the third base umpire, with Bucknor assuming second base duties.

Relevant Injury History: There is no recent relevant injury history.
