Tommy Kreuter Lost for the Season
Philadelphia, PA (7M7AP): The Philadelphia Wings lost right-handed slugger, Tommy Kreuter, today in the sixth inning of their morning game against the Salt Lake City Utes, a game in which Philadelphia was victorious, 5-0.
"Tommy took a weird turn at first base on his flyout to left field," Philly coach Bernard Mullin explained. "It was a very strange injury, how he tweaked his neck, but we'll have to pick up and move on."
Kreuter hasn't been on the DL since Season 1 when he had shoulder surgery.
"This is a tough injury to swallow... especially since it happened in such an odd way," Kreuter lamented. "I battled back from my shoulder surgery in Season 1, and I'll do it again and be ready for Season 12."
"It will be hard to replace his leadership, but we will move on and continue to be successful," Mullin added.
