"I was doing flips and I got too close and [Justin] Maxwell hit a line shot and the screen gave about that much [several inches] and it drilled me right in the forehead," Jirschele said.
Earlier this year, Jirschele had to replace Rusty Kuntz as the first-base coach because Kuntz sustained a broken left arm in batting practice. He was drilled in Cleveland by a line drive off the bat of Salvador Perez.
Kuntz this week shed his heavy arm cast for a lighter model and says he's closer to returning to the coach's box at first base.
