No it is not Justin Morneau, who had his plight with a concussion very well documented, (he will be returning as well) rather Jason Bay.  The overlooked “high profile” player that suffered a concussion in July also.  It was when the New York Mets were in Los Angeles and he ran into the Dodger Stadium wall giving him daily headaches.


“It was always about the headaches,” Bay said. “I got so used to having headaches, I didn’t know I had one. . . . Since the end of September, I haven’t had one headache issue.”

But according to the New York Post story the testing never “officially” indicated that he had a concussion.

“By all accounts, I haven’t played baseball, either,” Bay said. “But the workouts we go through are much more strenuous than baseball, and it’s one of those things, it’s not like a hamstring or an elbow where you try to rehab and make it stronger.”

And he said there are no further tests pending to determine whether he actually is healthy.

“I feel fine, but as far as testing and stuff, they couldn’t find anything wrong in the first place, so there’s no baseline to test it against,” Bay said.

It is good to see another player plagued by a concussion feeling 100 percent and ready for action.
