Royals manager Ned Yost is recovering at home from a 20-foot fall he suffered while working on a deer stand on his farm in Georgia on November 4.  He shattered his pelvis and broke four ribs.  After his surgery, Yost says the trauma surgeon told him that in falls as damaging as he suffered, it leads to death 25-30% of the time.  Yost says if it wasn’t for having his phone with him, he would have bled to death.

Yost said players, Andy Reid, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Clint Boyer and even Larry the Cable Guy reached out to him in the days after the accident.
