LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Coach Tim Tadlock and Josh Jung visited 8-year-old Ethan Chavez on Tuesday morning, after he was hit by a line drive during Sunday's NCAA baseball tournament.

Texas Tech was playing Louisville. It was early in the game and the boy was sitting with his father in the lower level along the first base line.

The boy, Ethan Chavez, is home from the hospital and his father says thankfully no bones were broken.

His dad thanked the Tech Athletic Department for continually checking in on him Sunday night. He also thanked the players who went into the training room to see how Ethan was before he was taken to the hospital.

Monday was Ethan and his twin brother Eric's 8th birthday!
