Beaning sends ailing Tony Conigliaro to hospital

Red Sox outfielder Tony Conigliaro was hit in the head by a Jack Hamilton pitch Friday night, suffering a cracked cheekbone. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and then to Sancta Maria Hospital in Cambridge.

He’ll be sidelines for three weeks, perhaps longer, and will remain at the hospital 48 hours for observation.
