WATCH: Caratini has nasty fall after his amazing catch

Baseball can be a physical game despite MLB trying to police some of the home plate collisions out of the game.
During Sunday's game against the Rangers, catcher Victor Caratini made an impressive catch in foul territory near the Rangers dugout before slipping and falling on his head. It was pretty hard fall straight on his head to the ground.
His head and neck area were checked out by the medical staff and somehow he was able to stay in the game.
Hopefully, Caratini will have no ill effects of this collision with the ground because he is a very valuable member of the Cubs serving as the backup at catcher and first base.
NO competitor wants to come out of a game when your bell gets rung. *NOBODY*. But while you may not feel the affects immediately, and the team is counting on you to play, your life is going to be long. Please take care of your brain. @LenKasper @Cubs #GoCubsGo pic.twitter.com/h6MBYgbTkA— Billy Krumb (@ClubhouseCancer) March 31, 2019
