KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Ned Yost spent Monday afternoon in a lounge chair at his farm just outside Atlanta, the pain from a shattered pelvis so unbearable that the only movement the Royals manager could make was to reposition.
He was happy for the pain, though. It reminded him he was alive.
Just over a week ago, Yost was working in a hunting stand on his property when he reached to attach a safety line. The stand somehow collapsed and Yost fell about 20 feet to the ground, and the landing was so hard that he sustained a "massive fracture" to his pelvis and four broken ribs.
