American Idol Season 10 grand winner Scotty McCreery was accidentally hit by baseball in the throat while pitching for his high school team on Thursday.
According to a report by Fox News, McCreery was the starting pitcher for the Garner High School team when he threw a pitch that came back and hit him in the throat. After the incident, the singer managed to recover and snag the ball and throw out the batter.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for Garner High School to win. The team lost the game 3-2.
“He has been throwing very well and will continue to help our rotation. He took a grounder to the chin, but is okay. Scared him more than anything,” local newspaper the Raleigh News & Observer said.
