DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham Bulls pitcher Tyler Zombro shared tweets for the first time since being struck by a batted baseball to his head on June 3 that depict his injury and road to recovery.

Zombro says that he is incredibly grateful to be in the situation he is in and is thankful for the help the staff at Duke Hospital has given him.

“Unbelievably grateful to be in the situation I’m currently in with the incredible help from
@DukeHospital & staff. To all of you that have showered my family and I with positive thoughts, I have no doubt that all of the prayer support kept God with me throughout that night,” Zombro shared in a tweet.

Zombro says he is thankful for the way that the Bulls organization and its parent club, the Tampa Bay Rays have treated him throughout the recovery process.

Despite the injury, Zombro says he cannot wait to get back on the mound.
