Hannibal's Romanin shelved for season after collision


HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -- Mattingly Romanin was simply doing what he was told.

In the end it cost him the last two weeks of the regular season for the Hannibal Cavemen.

Before Saturday's game with Terre Haute Romanin was instructed to hold his ground even if the pregame skydiver's got close.

Now it's a video and story that's made national headlines. In fact, the video has more than 1 million views on YouTube.

At the last second Romanin tried to duck the skydiver but it was too late.

The Chicago State junior infielder suffered a concussion from the collision and later took a ground ball off the face during the actual game.

Cavemen manager Jay Hemond tells WGEM Sports Romanin won't play anymore this summer after his second concussion in a matter of only a few months.
