After seven surgeries and several weeks in intensive care, the teenage son of former Atlanta Brave Keith Lockhart is being transferred to a step-down unit after being hit in the face with a baseball.

"Well, Jay has graduated from ICU!! What a boss!" wrote Sydney Lockhart, sister of Jay, 15, who doctors placed into a coma and was on life support for a short time following procedures to repair a ruptured artery behind his broken nose.

Lockhart was playing in a tournament in South Carolina last month when he crossed home plate and was then struck by the ball.
