MAJOR League Baseball star Masahiro Tanaka was floored by this stunning smash from Giancarlo Stanto.

Yankees were holding their first official summer camp as the sport tries to get back up and running after the coronavirus outbreak.

The terrifying incident took place just minutes into live batting practice and caused right-hander Tanaka to collapse on the ground for around five minutes before he was able to sit up.  

Tanaka’s hat flew off and he immediately collapsed to the ground, holding his head in clear agony at the Yankee Stadium. 

Stanton also held his head as he feared for Tanaka, 31, following his huge hit.

Trainers were immediately onto the scene and treated the pitcher.

Medics were concerned about Tanaka’s sight.

He was walked off the field after some attention.

Yankees star Aaron Judge repeatedly waved behind home plate and asked a video journalist to stop taking images.

Stanton, 30, is no stranger to injuries on the pitch himself.

He had his jaw broken by a high fastball in 2014.

There is no update on Japanese pitcher Tanaka’s health following the accident on Friday.
