There is good news out of the Bronx after a cameraman was hit in the head with an errant throw on Wednesday night.

YES Network and SNY camera operator Pete Stendel avoided the worst, but still suffered an orbital fracture in the event. He is home resting after being taken to a local hospital, the Yankees’ network announced on Thursday.

Stendel had to be stretchered off the field after the incident.

While the Baltimore Orioles were trying to turn a double play, Gunnar Henderson’s throw to first went high, landing in the camera well next to the Yankees dugout. But the ball went off Stendel’s head, which forced dull, frightened looks on everyone nearby.

Play was halted for around 15 minutes as medical staff tended to Stendel, and the field was cleared.

Yankees announcer Michael Kay reported that Stendel was conscious and speaking.

Fans applauded when Stendel was taken out of the well and eventually carted off. He gave a peace sign to the crowd while he was driven off, signaling that he was okay.
