“It wasn’t an easy time,” Mets manager Luis Rojas said. “Certainly our prayers are with KP. … It’s difficult. You think about a player’s career. You are thinking about a lot of things at the moment and you get emotional. “
The Braves players were clearly in distress when Pillar fell.
“It’s about as sickening as you can see on the baseball field when a kid is hit like that,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “I keep this child in my prayers and hope all is well. “
