Morneau Out For Season

4 Oct

With a season that started off as one of his best, Justin Morneau was getting ready for the All-Star Game and helping the Twins push for the playoffs.  Since July 7th, the Minnesota Twins had to do it without one of the best first basemen in the game.  On that day Morneau took a knee to the head while breaking up a double play and sustained a concussion.  Multiple attempts were made to get him back on the field, but each time met with a setback.  Now he has been ruled out of the post season completely by the organization.

Concussions are so different to all other injuries that not one person reacts the same to each incidence.  The Minnesota Twins deserve A LOT of credit by putting this issue front and center and handling it like it should be.
