During a Wednesday night game at Yankee Stadium, a cameraman suffered an injury after being struck in the head by an errant throw from Baltimore Orioles’ rookie shortstop, Gunnar Henderson.

The incident occurred in the fifth inning when Henderson, in an attempt to complete a double play, hastily threw the ball high to first base. Positioned near the New York Yankees’ dugout on the first-base side, Pete Stendel from the YES Network found himself in the line of fire and bore the brunt of the wayward throw.

Following the accident, the game came to a halt for approximately 17 minutes as the Yankees’ athletic training staff and medical personnel rushed to assist Stendel in the camera well. Both teams, including Henderson, displayed evident concern as Baltimore players left the field and waited in their dugout. The atmosphere in the ballpark turned somber.

Amidst the delay, Stendel was carefully secured onto a stretcher and transported off the field, acknowledging the supportive applause from the crowd of 36,022 as he made his way along the warning track behind home plate, signaling with two raised fingers.

Once the necessary preparations were made, Baltimore starter Dean Kremer received additional warm-up pitches before the game resumed. As a result of Henderson’s errant throw, an error was charged against him, allowing Anthony Volpe to advance to second base. The Yankees capitalized on the opportunity, as Kyle Higashioka delivered a two-out single to bring Volpe home, granting New York a 2-0 lead.
