Indianapolis Crew Transporting Kevin Ware Stayed Calm Amid Tears, Shock

(By Zak Keefer, and Shari Rudavsky)

"What you saw (Sunday) was everything we'd rehearsed, every single day, leading up to the event," said Ralph Reiff, who often runs the emergency medical crew at major sports events in Indianapolis. "You have a switch, and you do what you need to do."

The Louisville guard underwent successful surgery, and is already getting around on crutches, preparing to make the trip to his hometown of Atlanta to watch him teammates play in the Final Four.

Nice post, they did seem to do a fantastic job from the replay's I saw.

I think the teammate who was able to stay with Ware and tap him on the chest deserves some kudos as well, while no one else could look on (that would have been me too), he was right there with Ware trying to help as best he could, was nice to see.

Hopefully Ware is capable of a full recovery.

TWO YEARS LATER:

 

Amazingly, Ware actually came back and played 9 games last year for Louisville. ) O.o

He was able to get a red-shirt by sitting out the rest of the season, and transferred to Georgia State.

Ware had the best season of his career this year, starting for the first time ever (he was a reserve at Louisville), and helping lead the 14th-seeded Panthers to a stunning upset of #3-seeded Baylor in the N.C.A.A. tournament before they fell to Xavier in a tightly-contested Round of 32 game.

Ware has one more year of eligibility left (he will be a 5th-year senior next season.)

It will be great to see if his new team (Georgia State) can match or better what they were able to accomplish this season. ) :cool:

Ware is getting more playing time and scoring more pointed per game than he has n his entire 5-year college career now:

I'm happy for him, and glad to see that he is apparently faring very well, 3 years after his gruesome injury.

    • Of guys throwing 100+ innings, yes. 
    • You don’t win many games when you shoot 33% from the floor and 25% from 3.  MD was very lucky tonight.  Their defense was great the last 10 minutes of the game and Cowen obviously made a huge shot, but they need to learn from tonight. Good quote from Turgeon after the game: "The basketball gods were obviously on our side," Turgeon said. "It was kind of a miracle win. We weren't very good. I wasn't very good. And we weren't ready to play, and they were."
    • I read that Newsome led all MiLB pitchers in strike throwing percentage at 73% as well as lowest walk percentage at 2.7% in 2019.
    • There's a lot of good stuff in your post. I'll look forward to the rest. Thanks.
    • I'll get to the other questions when I get a chance. I appreciate good questions, I have done so much research that it's good to get some of that info out. 
    • Excellent. Thanks for the detailed response.
    • Good question, the main reason to pick Alemais rather than Hechevarria is you have nothing to lose and Alemais will cost 655K (100K Rule 5 fee + league min) and is controllable for 6 years if he works out while Hechevarria might get similar to the 3M he got last year and if he's good, he's either more expensive or gone. That said Alemais isn't at the top of my list or particularly close, I just think he's worth thinking about and I haven't heard him mentioned anywhere else.  For the Holt question, it could either be guys that fit the same profile that I mentioned earlier. So vertical spin angle, hop on the fastball, high 3/4 arm slot, above average spin. Or it could be guys that have some fixable pitch arsenal things, like a guy whose curveball and slider are too similar, or whose curveball doesn't mirror fastball spin, or who unintentionally cuts his fastball.  Guys that fit the profile include Joe Barlow, Trevor Megill, Brandon Bailey, Hever Bueno, Jordan Sheffield, Bryan Baker, Wladimir Pinto, Scott Engler, Kevin McCanna in a rough order of preference. Some of these guys aren't legit options, I'm just pulling all the guys I have notes on fitting that profile.  Guys that have some correctable flaws include (this is a limited list because I don't have time to extensively study video on every player) in no particular order Luke Bachar (more seperation of breaking balls), Daniel Alvarez (fastball spin angle), Cam Hill (spin efficiency of the fastball), Eric Marinez (release consistency), Andrew Lee (cuts his fastball), Kurt Hoekstra (cuts his fastball).
