Becca Wilson had a gut feeling that, after her son, Caiden, was hit in the head with a baseball before a game in April 2022, that his injury might be worse than it initially appeared.

Caiden, who plays for North Gwinnett High School’s baseball team, was knocked unconscious after the ball hit him during batting practice before a game against Loganville High School. He had been loading balls into the pitching machine and couldn’t get behind a protective screen in time before a teammate hit a line drive up the middle.
