South Carolina Baseball: Christian Walker Is Unable to Take BP, but in Lineup
South Carolina Baseball's Christian Walker is Dealing with Increasing Pain in Wrist
The fractured hamate bone in Christian Walker's hand was sore on Tuesday. And that is certainly understandable since he just played an 11-inning baseball game with it the night before.
So as his teammates were preparing for the chance to defend their College World Series title prior to game two by taking batting practice, Walker was icing his sore hand.
That didn't stop him from starting though, and that is not surprising either.

Walker was instrumental in the game one victory, and few people expected him to be able to play. He recorded the game's first hit, and he ended up scoring the winning run. Here are Walker's thoughts after the game:
I like to think I play hard, and no matter what's going on, I'm not going to let an injury affect how I play. I'm not going to take a play off. I'm not going to go 50 percent because my hand's hurting a little bit.
The game is already in progress. Walker looked good swinging in his first at-bat even though the result was ugly. He grounded into a double play.
