Cubs scout's son on life support after being hit by baseball

Son of former Braves player on life support after getting hit in the face by a baseball

But 15-year-old Jason Lockhart-son of former Atlanta Braves player Keith Lockhart-ended up on life support and faces more surgery this week, reports Fox Atlanta.

Jason Lockhart, son of infielder Keith Lockhart, was playing in a baseball tournament in SC on June 17 when the catcher threw a ball back to the pitcher as Jason was crossing the plate and it hit him in the face, WXIA reports.

Channel 2 Action News has learned when Lockhart touched home plate, the catcher was throwing the ball back to the pitcher. The ball struck Jason in the face, breaking his nose.

A few days later at the doctor's office, Jason's nose started bleeding non-stop and he was later transported to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.

Jason was scheduled to have surgery on Monday to remove the tubes and remove packing in his nose. "This has helped stop any movement that could encourage or cause a bleed to begin". A CT scan showed a tear inside his nose from the impact, and doctor's diagnosed it as a lacerated artery.

After receiving stitches, Jason's nose continued bleeding two days later.

Keith Lockhart played infield for the Braves from 1997 through 2002 during his 10 seasons in Major League Baseball.

"He is going to be okay we just don't really know when".

Others have come and sent prayers to Jason and the Lockhart family.

"I can't begin to tell you how strong Jason has been, and how much fright he has experienced along the way that he blew us away with his strength and focus to get through some of the scares in this process", Jason's mother said in a post on Sydney's Facebook page.
