Drysdale Hit by Line Drive

Aug. 18, 1960: You don't very often see the phrase "nearly maimed" in headlines for baseball stories.
Don Drysdale escaped serious injury when he was struck by a line drive, then he lost the game on the next pitch when Chicago's Ernie Banks homered to beat the Dodgers, 1-0.
