UPDATE: Son of Braves' Keith Lockhart moved out of ICU
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.
