Vicious Hail Storm That Devastated Reading Area Injured Phillies Prospect Jesse Biddle


This is not something you can make up.  Phillies prospect Jesse Biddle is missing a start because he was hit with a hailstone during Thursday's thunderstorms in the Reading area.

Mike Drago of the Reading Eagle reports:

 The devastation in the Reading area was widespread.

My friend Laura Concannon got a picture of one of the hailstones where she was:

And the damage totaled her car:

Meanwhile, another friend of mine, George Gesmundo, working at a Wyomissing hotel, also had his car hit with the large hailstones:


If Biddle was hit on the head directly with these, I could see how it could cause him to have headaches that would make the team hold him out as a precaution.
