A scary scene unfolded during the 4th inning of Monday’s series opener between the White Sox and Tigers.
C.J. Cron needed to be helped off the field after he got hit by a sharp ground ball while fielding at first base.

Cron lay on the ground for several minutes after the play and limped off the field with the help of Tigers staff.
Amazingly, pitcher Daniel Norris was able to corral the ball and tag out Danny Mendick to end the inning.
Cron has been one of the Tigers’ best power hitters, tied for the team league with four home runs.
