On May 9th of last year, St. Louis Cardinals minor league pitcher Daniel Poncedeleon was hit on the right temple by a line drive fracturing his skull and causing bleeding in the brain.
He had emergency surgery followed by months of slow recovery.
Yesterday, after many months of recovery
Daniel Poncedeleon made his Major league debut.
He threw 7 innings of no-hit ball.
Only 4 other pitchers in the history of baseball ever accomplished that in their debut.
The next day he was optioned to the minors.
