On May 7, 1957, Cleveland Indians pitcher Herb Score is struck in the right eye by a line drive hit by the New York Yankees’ Gil McDougald. Score will miss the rest of the season with a fractured nose and damaged eye. The 1955 Rookie of the Year, who won 20 games in his sophomore season last year, although Score will make a comeback, he will never be the dominating pitcher had been prior to the injury. Score will blame a torn tendon in his pitching arm, and not the horrific accident on the mound for his lack of achievement.
