Young slugger slugs a wall

Tyler O’Neill’s baseball season has hit a wall.

Literally – the frustrated slugger slugged a dugout wall and broke his hand after a strikeout May 10 with the Clinton LumberKings – the Seattle Mariners’ Single A farm team.

O’Neill’s six home runs were among the league leaders after 31 games. He will be back in action in late July or in early August.
