VIDEO: Florida Pitcher Brian Johnson Knocked Unconscious By Catcher's Throw

Saturday's first game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators included a frightening moment early, when catcher Mike Zunino attempted to gun down a Georgia Bulldogs base runner, but ended up pelting pitcher Brian Johnson in the back of the head.

Johnson tumbled to the grass next to the mound, sending a wave of silence around Regions Park as Zunino immediately expressed his concern (video via Deadspin):

Johnson regained consciousness before heading to the hospital, assisting medical personnel with his own stretchering. He also got to enjoy his team beating UGA in the night game, winning the SEC tournament's championship game against the Vanderbilt Commodores and clinching hosting status for the NCAA championships.
